I posted one of these I made for my office and got a request to make another. It is made from oak and has 3 coats of polyshades on it. The tray is plywood. Used a forstner bit for the holes. It took me longer than expected because I got my finger a too close to the bandsaw blade, which resulted in 6 stitches. Oh well, there will alway be part of me in this project.

I think drinking may have been what caused the damage… oh you mean coffee. That’s one of the few projects I have seen made with polyshades that actually looks good!

Well done – except for the part where your finger went into the bandsaw blade. Thankfully it wasn’t worse

Great project, Duckman. Sorry about your finger.

Can you tell me the size of the hole for the KCups? The dimensions?

K-Cup dimensions are 2” tall with a 2” diameter top.. So 1 3/4” diameter forstner bit should work so long as you have a little clearance with the drawer.

This is an excellent project. I’m going to build one next week now. Great work!

Like MrBagel said the holes are 1 3/4. On this one I wasn’t thinking about the top so had to glue up some oak to make it fit. The next one will be 4 holes wide and 5 deep. I will also but the holes about 3/4 apart.

Have your say...
