Step 1: Step 2: Prepare Your Boards

For my boards my measurements were 12x6. 12 inches long and 6 inches wide. What I used to cut my board was a bandsaw. If you don't have a bandsaw a regular saw will work as well. I decided to make the 3 boards the same size. If u want to make the boards a different size and height you can but this is what I used for my Instructable. I also made the boards 1 inch away from each other, you're going to want to keep that same space throughput the whole process

Step 2: Step 3: Sanding the Boards

The next step is sanding out the boards. This is very important because if you don't do this you'll get splinters and you don't want that. I used a sanding machine but if you don't have that you can use sandpaper. Sandpaper is cheap and will do the job.

Step 3: Step 4: Aluminum Tubing

To hold these boards all together I used a square aluminum tube. When I got it it was about 3 feet. I used a metal cutting machine and I cut it in half. To connect the boards I cut eight 4mm holes. Four on each side, two in the middle and 1 on each side.

Step 4: Step 5: Jar Time

I used 3 good sized jars. The jars are very cool and gives it a unique look.

I got three 39in ropes and I wrapped it around twice then I put it through two holes that I drilled on the top of the board.

Step 5: Step 5: Extra Details

I added hot glue on the bottom of each jar so that they would stay stiff and in place. I also hot glued the string rapped around the jars so that the strings wouldn't come undone.

And that's the end of my project on how to make a Cutlery Holder!

I would also like to shout out DIY KING 00. He is my motivation for making this piece of beauty. You should definitely go check his out. Just search up Rustic Cutlery Board and it's the first one to pop up.

Go show some love!

    Great work! I think this came out beautifully, and I bet you could use it to hold lots of things, not just cutlery.

    Nice use for mason jars!

    You should consider using the image from your last step for the main image, it shows off what you made very well :)

    Very well done 'ible with one exception.

    My question when I opened this was "What exactly is this used for?" I'm still not sure. I expect it's for knives, forks, spoons; but there's no picture of it in use nor explanation of exactly why I would want to build it.

    This is so true! I'm sorry I should've thought of that. And yes to answer your question this is a utensil holder but it can hold whatever you want it to hold!
