This project was born out of a need to experiment with some reclaimed lumber. It was completely custom designed from scratch and built using reclaimed mahogany lumber. This particular design hold 25 K-Cups, but the design and lumber choice could be customized to match any decor and to fit any counter space. The K-Cup insert is also removable so that the drawer could be used to hold coffee pods or even packs of coffee.
Personally, I think this project would look great in just about any type of lumber. It's big enough that even the busy grain of oak and ash would look good, but also small enough for Cherry, Walnut or any other tight grained lumber.
This project is finished with clear urethane and then waxed with a black bison wax to bring out the grain. As shown, this project would be $120.
The lumber was reclaimed from a Local 1970s Hotel that was torn down in 2012. Rather than let the lumber be bull-dozed over and sent to a landfill, I managed to get in and salvage it. Check out the pictures of the lumber as it looked after being removed and prior to cleanup.
