If we connect via instagram (@kyspeaks) or FB, you may have been aware that wordworking is one of my many hobbies. For whatever reason I’ve not been updating this part of myself on this site, an oversight that I should fix, and I suppose there’s no better time than now.

I may post other previous projects if there’s interests.

This particular project stemmed out of my need to have a better way to keep my coffee pods. While there are numerous styles in the market, most of holds only the pods, not the box, which means the labeling info (intensity etc) is lost.

I did a bit of research, found a design that’s made from metal and decided to improvise and make one for myself with leftover wood scraps.

The holder takes 5 tubes of Nespresso pods and hold them vertically, I cut notches on the wood to make sure the tubes stay in place vertically as well as holding the dispensing “mouth” open.

Glue was used instead of screws or nails to give it a cleaner overall look and feel. Made four of these and given two out, keeping two for myself, quite a decent built I thought, what do you think?
