Espresso "Knock Box" Pallet style

I recently started making a lot of espresso at home.  If you do the same Im sure you know how much of a mess it can make. So, in order to please my fiancée and stop making a mess of our kitchen, I decided to make myself a home made knock box to discard of my used espresso "pucks" in a clean and efficient way like at work! I had some left over wood from some pallet projects I had been doing, so this project was absolutely free!!  

It was super easy to make.  Decide the size you want, it should be big enough to be able to slam your portafilter on the bar without hitting the back side. Measure, cut, glue/nail together. I decided to make the back piece a little taller for aesthetics, it also provides a some splash protection. I wanted it to look distressed, so I hit it with a chain and hammer before putting it together, along with sanding the edges of the wood to rough it up a bit. Put your own personal touch into it. For the bar, I wrapped it with a decent amount of duct tape, then some black electrical tape to make it look good.  Make sure you use a really solid piece of wood for this part, as you will be hitting it pretty hard. Stain it to your liking and you are ready to go!! 


Enjoy your clean countertop! 

Cheers!! :)

  6. Our company Creative Warranties was founded by a group of white and blue collar average individuals who were tired of getting the runaround on Product and Service (Labor) warranties that either didn’t come with the purchase, was misplaced or lost over time , at risk of expiring which needs an extension. This daily runaround came from everyday well-known manufacturers and retailers in our local neighborhoods. The manufacturers and retailers we are referring to always found something in the “fine print” to discredit and disqualify the warranty policy of the product or service. This leaves us, the consumer, with no alternative other than to buy a new product or pay for the service again.
