Spice Rack and Spice Bottles
Old style assembly for spice bottles & food cans
 
  
 
1. Using a quick-dry craft glue, wrap spice bottle labels onto tubing. Allow to dry thoroughly before moving to step 2.

 
1a. Here are how the cans looks when applied to the base tubing.

 
2. Use a sharp cutting tool and cut apart the spice bottle shafts. Make sure to butt the blade up to the label for a quick clean cut. I find that scissors can be used with a little more ease.

 
2a. Here I show that the scissor blades are up close to the can label.

 
3. Use an artist's brush to coat bottoms of shafts with glue. Affix printed circle to bottom of each spice bottle shaft. Next coat glue to top of shaft and affix brass lids.

   
4. Fold rack backing in two. Glue blank sides together.

If you are unsure of yourself and want a practice piece first, merely trace the unit on plain paper before cutting pieces. Make a practice unit with the plain trace.


 
5. Take shelves and fold at fold lines as shown in photo. Glue tabs to inner surface of shelve. Use a pair of tweezers to get a clean contact. There are four for each shelf.

 
6. Slather glue to little fold-down panels found at the top edge of each shelf. Fold-down and press with tweezers.

 
7. Place glue to back side of one of the shelves. Press carefully against red rectangular guide on rack backing. Repeat for other shelf.

 
8. Your finished rack should look like this photo.

 
9. To place spices in the lower shelf, bow unit backward as shown in photo.

 
10. Here's the finished product.
