You ever have one of those coffee-less mornings? I don’t drink coffee but my better have is scary until that first cup but likes fresh ground Kona coffee. So I got the grinder and built a little drawer. I was her hero. . lol. I used African blood wood on one Oak with a cinnamon dye stain on the other two. Poly on the outside and Walnut oil or salad bowl finish on the inside.

My grandparents used to have an antique version on the shelf that looks like these, good job.

Great build…but on the next build you should use Hawaiian Koa to hold that Hawaiian Kona coffee. By the way, have your wife go on line and order some Kau’ coffee. Grown on the same Island as Kona coffee and is very good.

Have your say...
