Handywoman Adair Thies shares tips on kitchen cabinets.

You should replace old, worn-out cabinet doors with new ones that come with adjustable hinges. To adjust them, simply adjust the hinge with a Phillips-head screwdriver.

To make your own lazy Susan for a cupboard, hot glue the bottom of a pizza pan, a cake pan or a wicker paper-plate holder to a ball-bearing turntable. These are available for purchase at most hardware stores. The turntable on a lazy Susan allows for quick and easy access to kitchen items.

Keep kitchen cabinets organized with a rack for baking sheets.

Making a Baking Sheet Rack

Materials and Tools:

wooden cutting board
wooden dowels, cut into equal lengths

Steps:

1. Equally space drill holes in the cutting board about a 16th of an inch smaller than the width of the dowel. Shave off a bit on one end of the dowels.

2. Fill the holes with a small amount of wood glue and pound the dowels lightly into the holes.

3. Place your baking sheets and other pans between the rows of dowels.
