I like that you can pick them up, fold them slightly over a pot or pan and tap on the top edge to release the ingredients.

I also like that they take up very little room and contour to the bottom of any sink.
Yeah, I have a lot of little prep bowls which, the next time I clear out the kitchen, I may ditch. These are so easy to use and to clean and have multiple other uses. I don't like them as cutting boards for chopping (slicing is OK, but I like a softer surface for chopping), but they really work well for multiple jobs.

Thanks Forty.

I'll use your suggestion on the next one and move the smallest containers behind the larger ones.

After marking the holes in the board with templates I drilled a starter hole inside and near the edge of the hole.

Then I cut out the holes with a jig saw staying an eighth of an inch from the line on the waste (inside) of the line.

Then I stuck the templates to the board referencing X and Y center lines I had marked on the board and templates. I used double sided tape.

I then used a router with a pattern bit inside the templates to make the holes uniform and clean up the jigsaw cut.

Your welcome to PM me your e.mail address if you have any questions.

:)

That just looks fantastic. There are many cooks who would love to have that board.

There is all that and more. Cutting holes is one thing, Lining them all up to match evenly is another. i'd sweat and pace too many hours just to make the first cut. It's more than the standard "measure twice, cut once" rule.

This turns out as a terrific gift for your nephew.
