Build a Chimney Cabinet

Lead Image

Named for the classic heating elements with which they share a shape, chimney cabinets are tall, narrow furniture units, usually with shelving. They make a great storage solution for areas with limited square footage, and can help you declutter by making more efficient use of vertical space.

The basic process of assembly is like any other cabinet construction project, except instead of mounting to existing home infrastructure, your chimney rack will be free standing, like other Hoosier cabinets—convenient all-in-one units that became popular in American kitchens in the early 1900s.
