Mason Jar Spice Rack
This is just a little project that has been needing to be done for a while now.

We buy our spices in bulk in bags and we need a way to conveniently store them. Our pantry has quite a bit of clearance between the door and the shelves when you close it so my wife would like a spice rack to mount on the inside of the door. We also store our spices in mason jars (ranging from the really small 4 oz. ones to the 12 ounce jars). And there are about 40-50 different spices.

Can someone possibly guide my plans and process for doing this? Just so you know, the less actual woodworking the better as I am limited in tools for in none at this time.

The door that the rack will be hanging on is like the other normal doors to rooms in our house. 1-3/8" thick, standard door width and height. Appears to be a cheap modular home door.

Appreciate any help that can be provided!

no woodworking huh ..............

well you could install rare earth bar magnets onto the door then stick the metal lids (if you're using screw caps on ya mason jars) to the magnet. be careful slamming the door however.

another option is industrial type velcro (found at auto parts stores).

Logically, this is going to have to be a rack that simply has sealed jars sitting in it. And the larger jars (heavier) need to all go on the side closest to the hinges. That's just one thing to keep in mind.

I'm not sure I'd do this on a hollow door. At any rate, this is a good excuse to buy some tools. At least a circular saw. I bought the cheap one somewhere and it does absolutely fine for projects around the house.
