    Silverware Drawer Organizer : grover959
    If your plywood is finished on both sides and is the width you want, it may work fine.  If you go this route I'd suggest gluing a thin strip of wood on the exposed edge of the plywood, or use veneer edge banding.   

    I like to spray a clear coat over everything so it is protected and ready for lots of use. Minwax Polycrylic is a good clear coat option, my favorite is General Finishes High Performance Water Based Top Coat, it costs a bit more but is awesome.

    Silverware Drawer Organizer : grover959
    I used plywood scraps to model the layout and a 1x4x8' piece of Maple for the final build, ripping it into 2 strips. Here's a link to the one I built a couple years ago... https://www.ryobitools.com/nation/projects/silverware-drawer-organizer

    I'm building another one right now for my mother in law.  The nice thing about making them yourself is that you can customize the layout to meet your needs. 

    One thing that I really like to do is replace the standard drawer slides with full extension drawer slides, this allows the drawer to fully open, making it easy to reach things in the back of the drawer.

    Good luck with your project.

    • I'm a newbie to the Ryobi Nation and this is EXACTLY what I need to do.  What type of wood is this?  Because its eating utensils could you use scrap or plywood?  Thank you.

    • Could I leave the plywood in there for now & maybe make it with more clunkier wood?  I'm trying to clear out the wood in my garage so I can turn it into my workshop.  Or is plywood not useable because these are food utensils?  Thanks for the feed back.

    Pizza Peel : grover959
    The outside sections are black walnut and the center portion is a piece of hardwood that my dad brought back from Brazil many years ago.  I'm not sure what it is but I have some more and looking forward to using it again.  I used my belt sander (in an upright position moving back and forth) to make the taper keeping it at the same angle when doing both sides.

    Thanks.  It looks great hanging on the wall and is a good reminder of my turn to make dinner.

    • I love your choice of wood.  How did you taper the front?  I looks like a full board in the glue up process.

    Spray Can / Caulk Storage : grover959
    Thanks. They're angled at 30 degrees, I cut two scrap pieces at that angle on my miter saw and used them as a spacer and guide to line them up.

    Good luck with your project!

    Laundry Room Storage Slider : grover959
    Thanks! The ball bearing drawer slides work well, we have quite a bit of weight on the shelves and it slides easily.

    Thanks, this was a fun project.  Like many of our projects, one idea leads to another, our next plans are to built a shelf above the washer dryer with a pull out drying rack.

    • The drawers are very practical and useful! Great idea!
      I also liked the little access cover you made for the water valve.

    Thanks.  What I like the most is the ability to see everything at a glance,  The problem I had before is that things got pushed to the back of a shelf and were hard to find.

    @Robzbrz1992 Thanks for sharing these details, I appreciate it.  I've used a plunge router with lettered stencils but always chickened out trying to do it freehand.  I'm going to have to give this a try on a future project.  Thanks again.

    Blackboard Sign KIts : grover959
    We were happy with the design in that it provides multiple uses from the same material.

    Whiteboards / dry erase is a great idea, it would be an easy modification in that the same stand could be used.  Thanks for the suggestion, I'll definitely have to try it out.

    French Cleat Workshop Wall : grover959
    Thanks. Yeah, the top lumber rack is attached to the wall studs.  My walls are 9.5' tall and having it mounted above the cleats makes good use of wasted space.  The wood scraps / cutoffs bin works great, I've found that I'm more likely to use scrap lumber when it's so easy to find.

    Nicely done, your lettering and graphics look great!  I've never had much luck routing signs free hand, I'm curious what type of bit you use with your plunge router?
