1) A coffee bean shaped coffee holder…
2) …made from coffee stained…
3) …coffee shop stirring sticks!
A quadruple whammy of coffee coolness, that’s easy to make.
You’ll find this project in issue 32 of Make: magazine, right at the back, next to the ugly adverts – ha ha! It’s the last of 4 projects I made for Make: magazine, if you are interested in seeing the others I’ll put the links below.
It’s also another coffee shop inspired project, which seems to be a recurring theme of mine – I’ve used mine to store a bag of ground coffee, but you could use it to store other things such as sweets (candy) or kitchen utensils. The technique I’ve used is not dissimilar to the technique I used to make my rustic twig and wire bowl except I’ve used beads to create the spaces, and the sides do not slope.
I hope it gives you some ideas.
1) Collectable instructions – they look great stuck on the fridge!

I recently discovered Kevin McGuires Playful Plans website – it’s full of unique, downloadable plans for wooden playthings. I got instantly nostalgic, I grew up making things out of wood in my Dad’s workshop – unfortunately I now don’t have space for a workshop, but if I did, first on my list of things to make would be this retro little red wagon! Go check it out.
