Introduction: How to Make a Cutlery Dryer
I would like to present to you this inexpensive and fast solution for drying cutlery and cooking utensils. Simplistically made with a few nuts and bolts and couple of aluminium cans.
I sourced the nuts and bolts from a local hardware store and the aluminium can were a buy product of a recent bolognaise meal.
If you need a somewhere to dry your cutlery and utensils give this a try!
Step 1: Tools and Materials
For this instruction you need some materials and tools:
5x Nuts and Bolts BZP M3 x 13mm
2x Aluminium Cans
Flat head screwdriver
M3+ Screw or Nail (3-4mm)
Gather the items in the list of items above.
I recommend using a hammer and nail of 3mm to puncture the holes, but, if you don't have a hammer, screw or nail, find a sharp knife to puncture the aluminium can with. Do be safe and careful when doing this.
Step 2: Prepping the Cans
Remove the lid or any wrap surrounding the can and wash thoroughly to remove any glue of food.
Turn the cans over so that the bottom is facing upwards and puncture the can a few times, this will allow moisture to escape.
Step 3: Connecting the Cans
Puncture a hole at the same level on each can near the brim.
Use the nuts and bolts to tightly fasten the two cans together using a screwdriver.
Step 4: Attaching the Dryer to the Rack
If you wish to attach the cans to the rack this is a simple method of doing so.
Use a pen marker to mark above and below the drying rack on the can, as shown in the images, this is to make a puncture hole either side of the rack support to fasten with nuts and bolts.
*This probably isn't the most secure way of doing this so if you can think of a better and more secure way, use your intuitive and do it, and please let me know in the comments.*
