If any of you are like me, you have tried coffee brewed by several means. My favorite is espresso, but my wife prefers coffee made via the pour over method. In this method, coffee is placed in a paper filter and placed in a special filter holder. Hot water is poured over the coffee. The coffee is caught under the filter in a cup or pot. 

I made my wife several pour over stands over the years and was digging through my archives and came across these two designs. I thought I would share the drawing files with you so you can make your own.

Pour Over Design 1

In this design the two shelves are created and joined together with four legs.

The picture shows 3/4" material but it was too bulky so the designs was changed to 1/2" for a more delicate look and feel.

 

The legs are cut individually as it was easier to do it this way with 1/2" pine stock. If you can't get 1/2" solid wood, you can use engineered stock such as plywood, plastic sign material, or acrylic.

The top and bottom shelves were cut from a single piece of stock. I used a 1/8" two flute spiral bit for all cuts. The edges were slightly rounded over on the router table before assembly.

Drawing Files

The drawing files provided contain Ai, DXF, EPS, and CRV formats. The CRV (Vcarve) files also included tool paths.

Pour Over Design 2

Design 1 worked well for single cups, but was too small for a pot. Design 2 was larger and had easier access to the pot.

It consists of two large shelves and two legs as shown in the photo.

Use the drawing files to make your own stands, or use them to create your own designs. Let me know what you come up with and I will try to post them here so others can enjoy.
