Coffee Pod Holder

This coffee pod holder is for pods that fit into the Aldi expresso machine. It holds 12 pods. I could have made a four sided one to hold 24 pods but glad I didn’t in the end.
The base, runners and side edges are made from kwila (merbau) and the core is made from camphor laurel.
Finished with wipe on poly.
I turned the end of the core to fit into a recess dug in the base with a large forstner bit.
I used 2 part epoxy glue for strength.

Not so creative. I saw a similar one in a shop and modified the design a little.
Thanks for all your comments Jocks.

Never a shame to copy as long as we do better than the original. ;-)
