I would suggest reading Part 1 first before opening this one…

The next part is some plywood dividers. I had to go buy a half sheet – used about $5 worth …

I ended up needing to move the hole so I could round off the corner some more. This is what happens when there are no plans…

Set the utensils into the holders.

Mount each spring holder onto a plywood divider.

Screw all three panels together and even them up on the disc sander.

Grab another piece of hemlock and glue up for the front and back covers.

Shape to match the dividers and add a border lip to thicken.

I am going to need a pocket on one end…

And an access hole. File in a finger relief too.

I also got an excuse to get a 3/4 inch round over router bit.

That is probably long enough.

A little clearer now? One more post should finish it.

I’m slow today. Can’t figure this out. But since it goes in the kitchen, it’s made me hungry

At this point I know what it is, but I’m dying to know what’s going in the “toothpick” slot.

You’re right Al! The next post shows it all.

Kind of fun to let people speculate though…
