The idea from Carina from Berlin:
To make it easier to remove the inserts from the drawer, it would be nice if they each had handles on the narrow side.
Length in cm: 49,6
width in cm: 40,5
Height in cm: 6,75
Division of compartments: Standard (compartments for: Forks, knives, spoons, small spoons, small forks, serving cutlery).
Thank you very much!
The customer’s rating:
Your parcel arrived this morning and everything looks very good – thank you so much!
The inserts fit exactly into the drawer – one above the other, the way I wanted it 🙂
I will treat them with oil and send (more) pictures afterwards. This might take a few days though.
All the best to you
The story of the Bespoke cutlery tray made from wood L 40,5 W 49,6 H 6,75:
Thank you Paul, for such a quick reply.
I have added a drawing. However, it is not to scale.
Is it possible to put the subdivisions at an angle?
Also, it is important for me to have the interventions on the sides of the "trays" to be able to lift them out of the drawer.
To make the "trays" stackable, it might be good if the top one under the bottom has narrow ledges – but I'm sure you have more expertise and ideas on that than I do.
How nice that oblique indivisibilities are possible. I am very happy about that!
Attached is a picture of what the handles might look like. It would certainly be good if the outsides and bottom are made of stronger wood (1cm ?) than the dividers (0,5 cm?), because the cutlery has quite some weight and I will lift the trays more often – what do you think?
A matt finish would be nice (not glossy please). Thanks for the idea.
You are the expert. I am grateful for your advice.
The wood should be the same thickness throughout, please.
Paul, please NO varnish (as written above).
Natural, untreated wood.
This reads great – thanks Paul!
Hey Paul – looking good! Thank you, Carina.
Paul, for reasons I don't know, I can't watch the videos. But never mind.
I was able to open the pictures and it all looks very nice!
Love the color!!
Dear Paul – thank you for sending more pictures. The dividers look really good – as does the entire tray.
Can't wait to have both of them here!
Before I release them for shipping, I would like to see pictures of the finished inserts. One thing I noticed in the pictures I have seen is that the dividers seem to be different heights. While most of them are lower than the framing, some are higher and thus the inserts would not be stackable (pic 049 and pic 838).
I also see that the frame is not only glued but also stapled (image 049). Are these staples in the wood in such a way that they won't scratch my drawer (where the inserts are supposed to go on top of each other) when I lift them out and put them in?
Is there a picture of the top insert from the bottom? I would like to see what the ledges look like under the bottom that will make sure both inserts are tight on top of each other.
Thanks for your efforts.
All of this sounds very good, thank you.
Sorry to hear about complications.
Don't worry about needing more time. In Germany we say: Good things come to those who wait 😉
Thank you again
Paul – sorry for answering late.
Those trays look fabulous!
Super – thank you, Paul!
We are really looking forward to the trays. Ready for shipment, correct?
