Coffee duster

A notable birthday required a special gift for a coffee lover who is affectionately known as Barista Bob.

Bob loves to pamper his guests with the coffee of their choice and particularly likes to prepare a rich cappuccino complete with a delicate dusting of chocolate. With this in mind his sister-in-law asked me to make a personalised duster for his big day.

I cut two dusters from a sheet of smoke grey Perspex and made a stand from a thicker acrylic block. The base was made from a 100mm mirror disc with the ‘Barista Bob’ design included. A set of mirrored ‘Barista Bob’ discs were also made for matching coasters. Whilst the two dusters were the same size, the designs cut out of each were different sizes to accommodate different size mugs.

Simply place the mug on the base and slot the duster into the appropriate slot to fit above the mug and dust away.

 

In addition to the duster I made a stand for his coffee pods that also incorporated a rest for the duster at the top.
