This is version 2.0. I used my beta version for a couple of years and decided there was a lot that needed improving.

That is definitely an improvement! As you were talking about your old one I was thinking a curve cut out would be nice on the slats, and two seconds later you said that’s what you were doing.

Rigid makes a good low cost spindle sander. Check it out. http://www.homedepot.com/RIDGID/h_d1/N-5yc1vZ18g/R-100061671/h_d2/ProductDisplay?langId=-1&storeId=10051&catalogId=10053

Nice look. The cedar really gives a country-yet-classy look.

I love how your videos are .. pragmatic things, but incorporate a skilled ease… a very casual intensity, ie. the opposite of Norm.

I should add—the one thing I really like about the plasic dividers is that they tend to fit things better (the ones that are more custom fit to the silverware set). That way, the silverware stays in stacks and is more space-efficient. Just my OCD showing.

Steve, there is a low cost alternative to a dedicated spindle sander. You can get spindle sanders for you drill press. That’s what I do in the mean time until I can get an oscillating spindle sander. BTW love the videos keep up the good work.

Great show Steve. Glad you won’t have to eat with your fingers because the silverware is all ajar!! ;-)) You might bite a finger by accident and lose a week in the shop. Where would that leave us Mere Mortals?

I have thought about replacing the plastic thingy we have. Glad I know what pitfalls to watch for now :-))

I really need to make one of these. We’ve been storing our flatware in a plastic Sterilite drawer that’s about 5” deep. It’s a mess. I think I’ll get started on it today. You have inspired me, thanks Steve.

Living in MA , I second the motion to raise our thermometers in the Winter to keep us mentally warmer : ) LOL

Another great video , Steve !!

Did you freehand the bottom because the drawer your insert fits into wasn’t square ?

Steve, Steve, Steve I can’t believe you did that on film without out labeling DON’T DO THIS AT HOMEwith your saw. Have to mess with ya on this one.LOL Love your videos. Funny how you should bring up silverware trays at this time. I’ve been thinking on this very situation here as are many others in redoing the silverware drawer.
