Step 1: What You Will Need for This Instructable
The tools you will need are as follows:
- 3/8" forstner drill bit - for drilling the holes in the cutting board
- Saw - to cut the cutting board down and to cut up the hanger up. I used my table top table saw for this instructable, but all of the cuts could be made with a hand saw.
- Box cutter, razor blade and or x-acto blade - for trimming and cleaning up plastic parts.
- Small hammer
- Pencil and square edge or tape ruler
Step 2: Trimming the Cutting Board
Using a square edge ruler I marked the cutting board from corner to corner on the handle side. Using my table top table saw I cut along the mark I had just made. I then trimmed and cleaned up the cut using a box cutter/utility knife.
Step 3: Marking and Drilling the Holes in the Cutting Board
Measuring from inside the drip collector I marked at 1 1/2", 4" & 6 1/2", on the 8" wide part and marked the holes 1 1/4" in from the sides.
Using the 3/8 forstner bit, carefully drill at of the six marked spots. The holes should be as deep as you can get them WITHOUT going all the way through the cutting board.
Step 4: Cut the Hanger Into the Drying Rack Parts
2 parts - 3 1/2" long
2 parts - 2 1/2" long
2 parts - 2 1/2" long with an angle tip. The angle tip allows the caps of the "My K-cup" to catch to dry.
Using a utility knife or an x-acto blade clean up the ends.
And you get a 'bonus' "S" hanger after you cut the straight pieces from the hanger that you can use to store belts or scarves on in your closet...
Step 5: Assemble and Use.
Enjoy your new "My K-cup" drying rack.
