A beautiful wood crate that holds your beloved Keurig and stores all the coffees!  Free DIY plans by ANA-WHITE.com

This beautiful Keurig storage drawer is an easy DIY project that you can make with basic woodworking tools.

Inspired by a rustic crate, this simple DIY project can be made from scrap wood - or if this is your first project, for about $20 in materials.

It's designed without drawer slides or bulky wood extras - the coffee pod drawers simply slide on the space between the crate slats.

It's a gorgeous piece, that would bring a rustic real wood element to the home.  BONUS: The Mug tree is also DIY inspired by Shanty2Chic's Mug Tree.  

Here's how I built it:

I cut 1x2 boards (about $1.50 for 8 feet) as noted in cut list below.  I then stapled to the "legs" with my battery operated stapler.

I then stapled the back boards to the two sides.  Notice I am prestaining the boards - this is because it's hard to reach in between the slats to stain after the fact.

Then I just added the plywood top, stapling to the legs.  That's it for the crate part!

The drawer part is simply 1/4" thick plywood with a 1x2 stapled to the front underside that acts as the drawer face.  I just drilled out holes with a hole saw bit for the K-Pods.

Then I added the handles at the front.  

We built this Keurig storage drawer for our Guest Room.  You can see more of it in this video

I found this confusing: "10 feet of 8' long 1x2s"

Anyway, thank you for this! I bought a Kreg Jig off a friend and have been looking for a beginner project that used it. I'm going to modify your plan slightly to make boxes to store my DVDs in, inside my entertainment center. I bought a plastic box that is perfect, but my son pointed out that it's not very pretty. :)

If I were to build this as a Keurig drawer thing, I'd definitely need drawer stops of some sort--I can totally see myself dumping all the cups on the floor!
