I have been busily making Christmas products for friends and family, when my lovely Wife asked to interupt production and build this concept. I was told not to go overboard with design features. But the drawer still made it into the finished piece. This has removed the bucket system we used for containing the K-Cups. Anyway, simple project, the hardest part was drilling the 1 3/4 inch holes. I finally got to use my taper jig, I bought it a couple years ago, on sale, only had a few dollars to spend, thats what I got, then never used it. Tongue and groove joinery, Maple wood ( scraps from a trim carpenter friend) Amber shellac, and a couple coats of Gel Stain, some more shellac, and here it is. Fun little project. Now back to the lamps.
Thanks for looking

Looks like it would make a nice a spice rack. Put all your little bottles in each hole, loose spices or small measuring spoons in the drawer.

Love the coffee, it couldn’t be more convenient,just a little pricey. I also prefer fresh ground, but this is easy to clean too.

I like it. Good idea, with class and presentation. My eye doctor has one of these. I bet he would kill to have such a nice and organized way of keeping it all together.

My son and his wife have this type of coffee maker .I must have too inexpensive taste buds to properly appreciate this expensive concoction. I feel that this must require a much more refined and educated palette than the sorry one I currently posses as this ghastly brew does nothing for me. So sorry however you have inadvertently given me a nice project I cam make for them thanks so much I like the one you made too. Alistair

Very classy with the Keurig coffee maker.Great design to make all the coffees visible. Do you want to buy another Keurig coffee maker?

You had me wondering from the first picture because it seemed to have no depth, but with it loaded next to the Keuring, it made sense!!
