Espresso machines are very popular these days, but emptying the used coffee in the kitchen bin is not terribly hygienic, so Faye and Kevin build a nice little box using some small boards of western red cedar.

Step 1: Cut the parts to size and shape. Our box is made to fit around an empty plastic container that screws were supplied in, but anything convenient will do, even the bottom of a plastic milk bottle.

Step 2: Sand the inside faces of all the parts. We used a belt and disk sander (sometimes called a linisher) because it’s much easier to hold the small pieces on the sander, rather than the other way around.

Step 3: Drill holes for the dowel (we used 16mm dowel), then glue and cramp the box together using a polyurethane glue (such as Durabond). Then wait until it’s cured. It’s important to use water resistant, sand able and stainable glue.

Step 4: Sand the whole box flat and straight on the belt/disk sander. Take your time, to make sure all the faces and edges are straight.

Step 5: Cut a piece of automotive heater hose along its length to fit over the dowel, and stick some rubber feet to the bottom of the box. This will minimise noise when you knock out the coffee.

tip Faye’s Tip:
Mix the used grounds into your compost, rather than putting them in the bin.

The Ryobi Belt and Disk Sander is available at Mitre 10 and other quality hardware stores.
