Solid maple.

I had an original design to make a carousel that could contain a full 80 K-cups but it didn’t work out. It didn’t work out after i had already prepped the holy pieces. Haha.

SO this is my finished product using the material I already had cut out. I hope you like it please comment with suggestions on how i could improve the design.

I like it! Daughter recently got Keurig (sp?) and she loves Purpleheart wood. I have a left over piece that would work great for a holder/display like that.

Thanks for the comments!

The hole size i picked was 1 5/8” that way the k-cups would friction fit into the hole.

I was going to make a double drawer stand for the coffee maker. A 12 X 16 should give you at least 40 cups each taking up about 4 Sq in per cup.

You don’t need a bottom just a top with holes and a slot to slide it in. A double would give you 80 K cups.

Someone gave me the Kurig cup holder and it has maybe 30 cups but I’ve got more varieties than it will hold. i use unleaded on one side and leaded on the other.

Like it, simple design but very practical. Great way to organize those cups. Great job!

Thanks! I thought of making a carousel that could hold almost all of one box of the k-cups.. it didn’t work out due to some design oversight, I have 2 more of these now.. now sure what to do with them.

I just made this design. Three cups wide five rows high. Except my base was not deep enough and when I filled with cups I feel backwards at slightest provocation. Bad engineering on my part.

Haha yeah, I was worried about picking the correct angle to ensure that it was stable. I went with 12 holes because the orignal design was supposed to be a carosel design that could then hold 48 cups. This one holds a box of 12 though so it’s ok. I would have preferred to go with a larger capacity. My wife said she likes the design but wanted something that could hold more.. Anyone want to buy this? Because of the design change, I have three finished and ready to go somewhere. Let me know.

Thanks again for the comments!
