Coffee Accessories

This small trio of java accessories make the perfect gifts for the coffee lovers in your life, or to build for yourself.

Joe, java, brew — coffee. If there’s one thing that transcends generations, countries, and people from all walks of life, it’s coffee. Many people, myself included, savor that morning cup of rich, roasted goodness. And with other things in our lives, why not enrich the coffee experience with a few small items you can make in your shop? As you can see in the photo, the three coffee accessories span the coffee experience — from roasting to sipping. First up is a turned coffee mug. A stainless steel insert alleviates any moisture concerns, and the aluminum and wood handle makes it a pleasure to hold. Up next is a combination bag clip and scoop. Its duty is to keep your bag closed and beans fresh, while doubling as a small scoop for gounds. Finally, the fi lter caddy keeps all of those paper filters ready for use next to the coffee pot. And, just because these accessories are small, doesn’t mean you won’t get in some good woodworking. You’ll spend a little time at the lathe for the mug, the band saw for the clip, and a little bit of everything for the filter holder. They’re a great way to use up a few of those small scraps of stock that we all seem to accumulate. They also go together quickly, so it’s easy to batch out a handful of each. So, pour yourself a cup and head into the shop to get started.
