We have been remodeling our kitchen. Today we installed the last drawer, a custom made utensil drawer.

She said, Can you make one of these?

I said “OK”. :-)

Thanks for the kind remarks. I bought the utensil holders from Food Service Warehouse. For some reason, I can’t find the item in their onine website. I did find the solid version.

The ones I bought are described as “Browne-Foodsrvice (80110) – 4 inch Stainless Steel Perforated Cutlery Cylinder”.
They were $3.59 each.

The diameter is 3.75 inches. It just so happened that I have a 4 inch hole saw. I made a test cut on a piece of scrap plywood and the cylinder just drops right in.

So I laid out the holes in a staggered arrangement because my drawer is fairly narrow. The hole saw was perfect.

Edit: Now I see what the problem is. It is out of stock. I found the item with a google search.

Hope this helps.
