Pull-out shelf
Although Ron had done a lot of work to make his kitchen more convenient, when it came to the things stored in the base cabinets, he and his wife had to practically get down on their knees to see what was inside. And if they saw something they wanted in the back of the cabinet, they would have to first unload the items in the front. Ron knew there had to be a better way, so he went online and found a product called Quik Tray. The manufacturer claimed the product was easy to install, and could be custom fit into just about any opening and offered adjustable shelf spacing. 
Ron's first step was to remove the doors and the narrow half-shelf that was nailed into the cabinet. He then took out the drawers so he would have better lighting visibility while he worked.  Rolling Shelves
The base cabinet had previously been set up with five rather narrow individual doors and at first he was going to put in five sets of pull out shelves. But then he realized that each one of those shelves would be so narrow that they would not be able to put larger objects on it. So he decided to remove two of the vertical space frames, which would leave him with two wider pull-out shelves and just one set of narrow shelves in the center. 
Rolling Shelves Due to the weight of Ron's granite countertop, he decided to add a reinforcement strip, before removing the vertical supports. Ron applied glue to a strip of oak, and then slipped the piece of wood up behind the rail that formed the top of the cabinet opening. 
He held it in place with a few clamps while he secured it from the inside with screws. Rolling Shelves
Rolling Shelves With the reinforcing strip in place, he used a Japanese handsaw to cut away the vertical face frame section. Ron was careful not to damage the vertical face frames so he could reuse them. 
The shelving system required four support posts or pilasters for each pair of sliding shelves. Ron attached the first one to the side of the cabinet in the front.  Rolling Shelves
Rolling Shelves On the left side there was no cabinet wall, so Ron installed a partition and then attached the left front support post to it. He also created a partition in the rear of the cabinet to make up for the non-existent wall. 
Next, Ron snapped two drawer glides into the slots on the rear support post, set the whole assembly in place, and then snapped the opposite ends of the glides into the corresponding slots on the front support post. This would ensure that everything was in alignment so he could screw in the rear supports.  Rolling Shelves

Ron repeated the process with the left side of the cabinet, completing the base cabinet preparation. 
Rolling Shelves The shelf kit consisted of a front, a back, two sides, a bottom and some glides. The interesting thing about this kit is that it can be sized to fit just about any opening.
The first step was to cut the front and back of the shelf to length, based on the size of cabinet opening. Ron trimmed the bottom shelf to the same dimension. Rolling Shelves
Rolling Shelves The front and back came with dovetailed slots cut along their entire length. The sides had matching dovetails cut into the ends. Once the front and back had been cut to the desired length, the sides simply slipped into the grooves. 
To assemble the sliding shelf, Ron brushed glue on the dovetails, pushed the parts together, and then tapped them into position. With the frame complete, Ron applied glue to the edges and set the bottom in place. He then secured the bottom to the frame with screws. Rolling Shelves
Rolling Shelves The final step was to attach the metal glides. 
The rolling shelves installed in seconds and could be easily repositioned to accommodate whatever he wished to store on them. 
Rolling Shelves Ron added a slip resistant shelf liner on each shelf to prevent any contents from sliding around when the shelves were opened and closed. 
All that was left was to remount the cabinet doors. Ron attached the frame section he removed earlier to the backside of the left door. When closed, the cabinet doors looked exactly the same as before. Rolling Shelves
Rolling Shelves Not only did Ron improve his storage with the pull-out shelves, but he also doubled the size (and capacity) of the upper base cabinet shelves!
And, if Ron ever wants to change the shelf position, all he has to do is unhook the door glide, reposition it, and then snap it back in place.  Rolling Shelves
Rolling Shelves Sometimes getting more storage space in your kitchen is not a matter of adding more cabinets, but getting better use out of the ones you already have. 

Q: What is the widest possible cabinet opening the rolling shelves will fit into?
A: 32 1/2" cabinet opening

Q: How much weight will the shelves hold?
A: Shelves and guides are rated for 100 lbs.

Q: How durable is the 9-Ply Baltic Birch sides and 13-ply Baltic birch fronts?
A: Unlike particle or chip board which can dry out and begin to crumble, each layer of the plywood holds the other layer together. That is why a laminated beam is stronger than a solid wood beam.

Q: When I push my rolling shelf in it falls off the guide on the back left side?
A: Adjust the left guide in towards the shelf until it stops falling off.

Q: There is a rubbing sound when the guide is pushed in.
A: Check if the screws are rubbing on the guide or the guides in the back may be too close or the guides might be declining down from the front of the cabinet to the back, causing the shelf to rub on the bottom of the cabinet.

Q: I accidentally made my shelf too small.
A: Don't worry, just add some metal washers to the sides on top of the " spacer to bring the guides in.

Q: I accidentally made my shelf too big.
A: Simply file down or cut the supplied " spacer. It will still hold just as well. Or, if it is over " too big, you may need to disassemble one side of the shelf and cut down accordingly.

Q: One side of the shelf in the front does not sit on the guide.
A: This means that the opposite side of the side that is lifted is too low in the back. Move the rear mount socket up, and adjust accordingly as needed.

Build these shelves yourself and save! Just measure, cut, assemble and install!

Brambuilt Cabinets went one step further and developed an easy way for customers to easily measure and install their own rolling shelves (patent pending). This, coupled with an incredibly strong dovetail construction made rollingshelves.com an instant success.

The shelf is engineered in a way where dovetail grooves run the entire length of the front and back pieces. Then male dovetails are routered to the sides and are able to slip into the front and back pieces.

Our shelves do not need an existing shelf to be mounted into your cabinets. You simply mount the supplied drawer slides to the face frame and then to the back of the cabinet with supplied rear mount sockets. So those of you who have those little 1/2 shelves in your lower cabinets can use our product. But for easy installation we offer mount ot shelf brackets which simply screw to a full depth shelf or cabinet floor.

We use 9 ply 1/2" Baltic Birch which is 3-1/2" tall for the back and sides and 13 ply 3/4" Baltic Birch which is 2-1/4" tall for the front.

The bottoms are 1/2" white Melamine which is very easy to clean with a damp cloth.

The bottom was designed to screw to the front and sides of the shelf so there is no worry about the bottom falling out.

Our guides are manufactured by Blum.

If you ever bought cabinet hardware you would know that Blum is the industry standard for high quality drawer guides. Blum constructs their guides so well that they offer a lifetime guarantee.

These guides are rated to hold 100 lbs. of weight with the shelf fully extended.

Dovetails actually lock themselves together so they can withstand the constant pulling and closing your shelf will have to endure where others will fail.

For centuries, Dovetail construction has proven itself to be the best. Our competitors use Dadoed construction which is not as strong and less expensive.

Shelves come in a natural, hand sanded finish. Leave them as is or stain them to match your cabinets.
