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 love the stain color. What…
I love the stain color. What stain did you use for the holder and the mug tree?

Confusion on cut list; also thank you!
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!
