Stylish Kitchen Containers
Unique, open-miter joinery and contrasting woods give these simple boxes a very eye-catching look.
Who says kitchen storage can’t have style? These three attractive containers are designed to hold some of your basic kitchen necessities — two tall boxes (one to hold knives and one for utensils) and a recipe box for safekeeping of the most-prized family favorites. Each container starts as a straightforward, mitered box. Contrasting walnut splines add strength to the joints. But then things take a slightly different turn. Using a simple technique, the decorative splines are exposed at the corners. What you get is some very interesting woodworking and a thoroughly unique look. And my favorite part of the project is that from first cut to finished project, you’re only talking a couple of days.

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
