  1. I've found it easier to separate less, i.e one bin for spoons, and not two, keeping big spoons and little spoons in the same bin. Same with forks. This way when unloading the dishwasher, you have the easy at-a-glance separation of knives, forks and spoons into just 3 big bins, for instance, and you don't have to bother with the more fiddly separation of big ones from little ones.

  2. Fantastic build! Sometimes what seems to be the "simplest" of ideas are the most practical and useful. I've been batting ideas around for a while on making a custom organizer for our cutlery…and I have to say, I think that I'll be emulating much of what you've done here! Thanks for the demonstration!

  3. Lovely project, thank you. I'm in the UK and as you know, dado blades are hard or impossible to get here. But I never quite understood the point of them – can't I just lower the normal blade so it only cuts half way through, and then do several passes on that? Is the benefit of the dado blade that it cuts more width at once, saving on passes?
    (Sorry, I'm sure you've covered this before but I've not yet found it in the many videos I've watched!)

  4. Great project I need to make some of these for every drawer I have because they always seem to get so cluttered no matter how I organize everything in them. And I love the drawing bow idea. I have been wanting one but I couldn't justify paying so much money for one, some ate so expensive. +Steve Ramsey

  5. Kitchen organizing tip. I have a drawer that I put things in that I think I can live without. If I use something from it, it moves to a regular drawer. At the 6 month mark I give whats left in it to Goodwill, and refill it with new things I think I can live without.

  6. There's a related book called "The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a Fuck." No, seriously, that's its actual title. It's sort of semi-inspired-by and semi-a-parody-of the one about tidying up. Instead of decluttering your house, it's about decluttering your schedule (and your brain) from pointless social crap that does nothing but stress you out. I heartily recommend it.

  7. Hi, Steve,
    I've not long discovered your channel so am playing catch-up for some projects.
    I made a drawer organiser for a very wide drawer. Someday we'll change the kitchen and have everything how we want it. In the meantime, the organiser has 3 compartments front-to-back at the rear and 1 left-to-right at front. It sits in the middle of the drawer so that I still have full length front-to-back for serving spoons, etc. The other 28" wide drawer has the cutlery organiser from our last house. Again, it sits in the middle. 3 f-b for cutlery, 2 slightly longer at each side with a spoon compartment l-r between. Space in front of the organiser and at each side for odds and sods.
    I would not have thought of using the "bow" for marking the curves. I would have dis-assembled it and used a paint can or larger for the curve. Your way means instant adjustment without searching for a larger can !
