Picture of Simple Pour Over Coffee Stand

Do you like coffee?

Do you want to make your own personalized pour over stand?

If you answered "yes" to the any of the previous questions, make sure to take a look through this instructable!

The goal behind this project was to make a simple and somewhat cost-effective stand in order to practice and better perfect an ability to make quality pour over coffee. Since there are a plethora of available pour over stands already on the market, I decided it would be more unique to make a stand tailored to any personal aesthetic and technical specifications.

this is cool. I made something similar out of cardboard boxes whe we were in Iraq with no well and we at least had coffee

Stain it with coffee? Then oil it.

I was thinking how the look could be modified if the metal rod was replaced by a copper pipe. Thanks for share.

Elegant, simple design! I was wondering why you didn't use the silicone self adhesive dots for the feet to keep the base from sliding? The nut for the rod could have been recessed into the base or a dowel used...just a thought. Thank you for sharing :)

That would be a better idea in terms of keeping it still. I will most likely recess the nut soon! Thanks for the suggestion!

Most welcome :)

Nice idea, I like the look of this with wood.

You may want to use t-nuts or threaded inserts for the rod. Then you wouldn't have to put the feet on. Just a thought :)

That would definitely make it cleaner and more seamless, I'll have to look into it. Thanks!

Xtremely aesthetic ! Solid marriage between modern and vintage haphazardry ! LOOOOOOOVE it !!! Why don't you create a coffee line and look for coffee machine makers who would want to sell your creation ?

Thank you! I'd have to look into that further, that could definitely be a fun idea!

What size is the funnel and hole saw you used?

jaschenbach (author)  jarheads1 year ago

The funnel is 100mm! Here's a link to it:

The photo of the holesaw says it is 4 inches / 108 mm diameter. Obviously, the funnel is somewhat bigger than that.
102 mm

Simple, Cheap, Functional!

It was the target, and you did it. It is goodlooking too.

You good use a nut on top like these ones ( I don't know the neglish name)

And a tip: You good drill the holes, especially the 4" one, before gutting the wood. Than it is easier to drill because you don't have to fiddle withe the small pieces.

jaschenbach (author)  keets1 year ago

A different nut like that could look much cleaner and you're definitely right about drilling the bigger piece, thanks!
