Pots and Pans underbench storage

Pots and Pans underbench storage


I would like to divide an underbench shelf to allow fry pans, pots and lids etc to stand on their side and slide out individually (think bookshelf) so you don't have to take all the stacked pots apart to get to the one you need and lids aren't scattered all over the place. The dividers would need to be adjustable for different pan depth.

I thought about laying a predilled wardrobe melamine panel down and place U-shaped metal rods into the holes to allow the pan to rest against. Any other ideas are welcome. There are plenty of dividers available overseas and even Ikea have specific designed ones to divide shelves but not in Australian stores. (Google shelf dividers - images)
