Make a Coffee Station Out of a Small Cable/Wire Spool

6 Materials
Use a small wooden cable/wire spool to make a spinning coffee station for your kitchen countertop! My coffee station corrals cups and supplies, spins for easy access, and is compact and easy to make!
Disassemble the spool by removing any nuts/bolts that are holding it together.
Cover the center tube with textured wallpaper, paint, or whatever fits the look you want.
Attach cup hooks to the underside of the top, and glue a spinning spice rack/lazy Susan to the bottom.
Attach a small basket or other container to the top for holding creamer, K-cups, and other supplies. Reassemble top and bottom with the center tube, and your coffee station is complete!

Suggested materials:

  • Wooden cable spool
  • Spinning spice rack
  • Cup hooks

    Any place that sells wire, small chain or anything like that.....they will most likely have these small spools on a regular basis. I work for a petroleum service company (we fix gas station dispensers and stuff) and I just received a pallet of 12 of these and my techs have already cleared three of them in just two days.

    These are also good for keeping extension cords, Christmas lights, Halloween lights, anything that comes on a string, many things you can do with these!!
