Ikea kitchen hack: in-board bowl



From the MAKE Flickr pool: user Queen Esoterica hacked her Ikea kitchen butcher block counter to include a bowl. She writes:

You shove cut stuff into the bowl (I tend to cut right to left). then you can take the bowl to wherever you’re cooking and then brush the trash into the (soon to be plastic-lined) drawer, for easy transport to the trash. I got two bowls of equal diameter, one deeper and one shallower. To use the deep one, you have to remove te drawer. But I didn’t even forsee how great this would be for baking! It was great!

This would be a dream for me. I might be inclined to use the bowl for scraps, too, depending on what kind of cookery’s going on.
