But even with that glue reinforcement, this thing just completely fell apart.
|From bad to worse. Perhaps I should have glued every single joint pre-emptively, but there's only so much superglue in the universe.|
|Wholesale failure of the back as well as the front.|
|Thinking about buying one of those large neat-looking adjustable bamboo cutlery trays??? Good luck to you - here is what mine looks like after a few short years of use.|
I acquired an interim solution today from Bed Bath and Beyond, the operative word being "interim". It doesn't meet our needs, but I jury-rigged it to be halfways functional until I get a better plan figured out.
|The adjustable side sections did not come with enough feet...|
|...these small felt chair pads don't match the plastic feet it came with, but you don't see the underside of the cutlery tray anyway...|
|...whatever, as long as it semi-works...|
|As well as lashing each end of the satellite pieces to the main tray, I lashed the middle. If you do this kind of thing with wire, you have to put a felt pad over the wire knot, or it will scratch the bottom of your drawer.|
|Other side in progress...|
|...and this is the final lashed in-drawer fit, but immediately you can see the problem before I even load it: the individual sections are the wrong size ratios for a large flatware set.|
