The idea from Felix from Dross:
1. material: the box material should be made of natural wood treated with oil, which is somewhat water resistant and should give an impression of style and elegance.
2. size: the box must fit in a kitchen drawer as shown in the sketch.
3. appearance: The box should be clean and neatly finished and have an attractive and unique appearance.
4. Customization: The box should be handmade to ensure the best quality.
5. compartment divisions: Refer to the sketch.

The story of the Made-to-measure cutlery tray according to drawing:
I understand what you want and thank you for being so elaborate.
I propose to make the tray out of cypress wood which has a light brown color and finish it with linseed oil for food safety purposes.
I propose to give the tray a 0.25 cm allowance all round the drawer for easy insertion anf removal of the tray in and out of the drawer. The sides on the base will be rounded and have slightly tilted sides too.
The tray will have a smooth surface glazed with linseed oil.
The tray will be carefully and uniquely hand made.
I am ready to start realizing your idea once you give me a go ahead.
YES, I ask you to realize us the cutlery box!
I managed to get the wood for the project and have already prepared it for the tray.
I have attached and sanded the different sides as well as the base.
The tray's frame and divisions are already attached, I will attach the base once it's dry and start working on finishing the tray.
Thanks, I'm already curious to see how it looks finished.
I'm afraid I don't see a photo?
Are you sure you uploaded it? Where can I find it?
Thanks Brian, it looks good :-).
