My options are to build or buy. I opt to build for less cost and not take away from to my precious counter space. When I can, I model so I know the measurements I need and to minimize errors. That’s the case here. I’ll use the kitchen cabinet drawer beneath the brewer. Modeling also helps me buy the exact amount of materials I need, saving waste and extra trips to the hardware store. Here are my smartphone pics.
By making a wood holder and having more space between pods, I have more wood to finish [stronger] and enjoy the beauty of its grain. I will finish the holder with Tung Oil as I did the tripod tray.
