    • What an upgrade! It looks great, and could not be a better use of the space!
      By RYOBI Nation, on January 8, 2017

    • This was a great idea for this little space!

    • Awesome idea! Way to represent RYOBI Nation too! Thanks for sharing the details!
      By RYOBI Nation, on February 8, 2017

    • My teenage son has taken interest in RYOBI Nation projects as well and is busy brainstorming future projects for us.

    • I really like the dual phone and tablet design. Did you bevel the edges as well?
      By TARZANTHEJEDI, on March 4, 2017
      • Thanks. Yeah, I used my router and a roundover bit to slightly bevel the edges on a few of them.

    • Is there detail plans for this?.... would love to see one so that I could make one to surprise my wife
      By Rasicalreis, on March 5, 2017
      • Steve Ramsey has a great tutorial on his woodworking for mere mortals site. He offers really good tips and shows three generations of drawer organizers he made, and how he improved each one. It was very straightforward to make; once you make the outside frame you make and customize the divider slats. You have to be careful with the Dado cuts but once you have that down, it's easy to assemble. Good Luck.
        By grover959, on March 27, 2017

    • This is fantastic. I hate the wasted space that generic drawer dividers create. I also like the curve you cut in to make it easier to grab utensils.
      By TARZANTHEJEDI, on March 5, 2017
      • Thanks. We just refinished the outside of the cabinets and wanted to provide better organization for the inside.
        By grover959, on March 6, 2017

    • This is beautiful! The wood dividers look smaller than 3/4". Are they from a smaller piece of wood?
      By homefor3nc_126334, on July 22, 2017
      • I ripped a 3/4" maple board into two strips. The thick strip is 3/8" and used for the outside frame, the remaining (thin) strip is about 1/4" and used for the inside dividers. Here's a link to our blog that highlights steps in greater detail. http://www.makingitours.com/silverware-drawer-organizer/ It was real easy to make and has held up well over time. Good luck with your project.

    • Great work! These pieces are timeless- you're sure to get many years of use out of these. Nicely done!
      By RYOBI Nation, on March 8, 2017
      • Thanks much.
        By grover959, on March 9, 2017

    • Really like the idea for the power cord notches
      By TARZANTHEJEDI, on March 8, 2017
      • Thanks, they work well to keep the cords from falling behind the unit when disconnected. I didn't have it in the picture but we have a slim USB charger on the back of each unit (attached with Velcro tape) so that each nightstand has 5 charging ports in easy reach, while concealed in the back.

      By TheBusDriver, on March 17, 2017
      • Thanks. We added the door racks afterwards and they added a lot of extra storage. The Shanty 2 Chic girls have great plans that are real easy to customize.

    • Terrific and simple storage solution! It's amazing how much space there really can be in a garage if you just know how to use it.
      By RYOBI Nation, on March 24, 2017
      • Thanks. Yeah, getting this stuff off the floor freed up a lot of space and made them easy to find.

    • I would love to have these beauties. Yes, they make great pedestals for an outdoor wedding or place near the altar in church. I also could see them as legs for a desk or table. The possibilities are endless.
      By SisterSister, on April 6, 2017
      • Thanks. They were real easy to make, the only issue I had was that my son, and future daughter in law, live out of town so I wasn't able to get their input before final assembly. I figure I can always shorten them if needed.
        By grover959, on April 7, 2017

    • This is a great solution! It looks better with the wood than it probably ever did new!
      By RYOBI Nation, on May 4, 2017

    • I have a broken glass table too -exactly like yours Do you have instructions to make this new table top?
      By Jinman, on May 23, 2017
      • It was pretty straightforward. Here's the steps that worked for me. I placed the round table frame upside down on a piece of cardboard and traced an outline with a pencil. I then cut the cardboard, slightly undercutting the outline. This provided a cardboard template that was the same size as the inside of the frame. I placed the composite deck boards face down and clamped them together temporarily with pipe clamps. I then traced an outline on the back side of the board using the cardboard circle. Once I had an outline, I marked the locations of the pocket holes. Outlining the circle before marking the pocket holes allowed me to make sure I wouldn't have any pocket holes / screws on the cut line. I secured the bottom side of the boards with pocket holes using my Kreg jig. I used Tightbond III glue between the boards as I secured them together with pocket screws. I wiped off excess glue and let it dry overnight. I used a jigsaw to cut the table as outlined and then popped the new top into the circular frame / table legs. Although it fit perfectly, I added a bead of silicone along the bottom side at the edge of the table and frame. Good luck with your project.
        By grover959, on May 23, 2017

    • This is amazing, this looks so much better than those glass tabletops. Stronger too
      By TARZANTHEJEDI, on June 29, 2017

      • Thanks and it was super inexpensive to build!
        By jennifersplace03, on August 29, 2017

    • I love this idea and would love to make it for our backyard. Is there info somewhere on how you made it?
      By Amoore0206, on October 7, 2017
      • We came up with the design ourselves and determined optimal size as we constructed it to accommodate the canvas cover she had purchased. We determined that buying treated 2x4's and ripping them into 2x2's was cost effective and provided lots of strength without being too heavy. A great place to start is the top of the frame by drilling a hole between the two boards on each side and bolting them together. Having them bolted in place allows you experiment and determine the best angle (pitch). Once we had the angle we wanted we tightened bolt to keep this angle and then repeated the steps for the other side. One thing that helped us was to clamp the boards to together as we mocked up a design. We experimented a bit to confirm the height and overall size and then glued and screwed everything together. The final height allowed 6'6" of clearance in the center. She was able to move it around a few times to determine placement and best shade cover. Once she found the best location we anchored it to the ground by using long tent spikes in each corner. To secure the canvas cover, one side of the structure has eye screws and S hooks, the other side is similar but has a turnbuckle between them that makes it easy to tighten or loosen the canvas. This also makes it easy to remove and store the canvas during the winter. Good luck.

    • This is great!
      By dwirving68, on September 25, 2017

    • Excellent work! What paint and process did you use? I always end up with stickiness when I paint surfaces like this.
      By mjjones, on October 7, 2017
      • Thanks. I applied Zinsser 123 stain block / primer to the MDF with a foam roller and once dry, lightly sanded before painting. I then used a general purpose paint (Rustloeum Painters Touch) in gloss. For small projects I've had good success applying paint on MDF projects with a foam roller. For big projects I use an HLVP sprayer, it cuts my painting time in half and provides a crystal clear finish without brush or roller marks. With my particular HVLP sprayer I have to slightly thin latex paint but many of the newer sprayers can spray without thinning. For projects that have a lot of hand contact, I apply a couple thin coats of clear coat (Polycrylic) for additional protection. I really like using an HVLP sprayer to apply Polycrylic because it's super easy to spray and cleanup. I've used the same technique when applying a protective clear coat to kitchen cabinets after painting them and they're held up really well. Good luck on your projects.

    • What a neat addition to a normal kitchen drawer! Did you use the existing drawer or have to create a new one altogether?
      By RYOBI NATION, on May 3, 2018

    • Thanks, it was a fun project.  I cut a 3" opening in the back of the existing drawer and then made a new top drawer out of plywood.  I picked up a 12 pack of roller slides and am planning on using them for more projects like this.
      By grover959, on May 3, 2018

      By RYOBI NATION, on May 15, 2018
      • Thanks.  It was a fun project and the build was very straightforward.  The thing I struggled with the most was getting the stain to match the existing cabinets as close as possible.  I used a Minwax Cherrywood Gel Stain and blended in some dark walnut before applying the polyurethane top coat.

        By grover959, on May 18, 2018

    • Hi! I love what you  have down with that sliding cabinet. I was wondering though how you mounted it to the wall and have it be strong enough to hold all those spices. Would you be able to give me links to the hardware you used to mount it to the wall and have it slide?

      I have been wanting to do something like this for a long time and your implementation has been the best I have seen by far!

      Thanks!

      By jstngreen24, on May 23, 2018
      • Thanks.  I used 28" ball bearing drawer slides that I found on Amazon.  
        https://www.amazon.com/Heavy-Extension-Drawer-travel-Capacity/dp/B01C97YI54
        They are full extension slides with 1" over travel that help provide additional extended length.  The drawer slides are rated for 100+ lbs and the rack fully loaded is about half that weight.  I originally thought I might have to use additional slides but started with two of them and found that it moves in and out really easy, even when loaded up.  

        Building a frame mock-up helped to optimize size and placement.  The width of the unit is 5.5" and still allows the refrigerator door to swing fully open without interference.

        I wish you the best on your project.

      • 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.

      • 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.

    • I seriously need to build this, nice job.
      By Siclestix, on January 2, 2019
      • 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.  
        By grover959, on January 2, 2019

    • i need to as well
      By jburks23, on January 2, 2019

    • Great build and idea, I see one in my future! 👍
      By Arcuss88, on January 16, 2019

    • Simple and effective solution! Thank you for sharing!
      By RYOBI Nation, on January 20, 2019

    • Nice build!  I have a question though;  it looks like the shelves are cut to a degree.  Can you advise at what degree?
      By waragon, on March 29, 2019
      • 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!

    • Could you please tell me what the width of your side boards are?


      Thanks for the information, I made the project this weekend with little modifications.  Appreciate you taking the time to share.

      • The sides are 5.25" wide with a 1/4" plywood back.  It's made a big difference in organizing spay cans and caulk/adhesives making everything easy to find.  Good luck with your project!

    • Wow, what a huge improvement! We love the hidden storage and the new top work surface! Great job!
      By RYOBI Nation, on January 21, 2019
      • 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.
        By grover959, on January 22, 2019

    • The drawers are very practical and useful! Great idea!
      I also liked the little access cover you made for the water valve.
      By TARZANTHEJEDI, on January 22, 2019
      • Thanks! The ball bearing drawer slides work well, we have quite a bit of weight on the shelves and it slides easily.

    • Wow, this is perfect for the space! Love what you did with the sliding drawers for organization. We know she loves it!
      By RYOBI Nation, on August 7, 2019
      • Thanks.  It was a fun project and gets lots of use.  
        By grover959, on August 7, 2019

    • What a great gift! Great choice on the stain colors as well. Looks like she's ready for pizza night!
      By RYOBI Nation, on August 7, 2019

    • Thanks.  It looks great hanging on the wall and is a good reminder of my turn to make dinner.
      By grover959, on August 7, 2019

    • I love your choice of wood.  How did you taper the front?  I looks like a full board in the glue up process.
      By mrpip, on August 12, 2019
      • 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.

    • 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. 
      By Making_It_Best, on September 24, 2019
      • 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.
        By grover959, on September 28, 2019 (edited)

    • 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. 
      By Making_It_Best, on September 28, 2019
      • 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.
        By grover959, on September 28, 2019

    • Great job!  Everything in its place very well organized, this is exactly what I need, thanks for the inspiration. 😊

    • What a great use of space, I'm wasting all the space inside my walls. 
      By TARZANTHEJEDI, on May 4, 2020

    • Thanks. I started with a small opening to confirm there wasn't anything in the space. It's definitely helped to free up shelf space.

      • Thanks!  It helps consolidate space while the blast gate makes it each to switch dust collection between tools,

    • I need to learn how to make logos like that on my scrollsaw.
      By Lola85, on July 29, 2020

    • Nice work as usual!  I had to read to know you didn't use a CNC. I'm still waiting for a Ryobi CNC.
      By mrpip, on August 1, 2020
      • Thanks, it was a fun project.  I agree, I would love to see Ryobi come out with a CNC.
