My truck has six cup holders, but none of them are quite the right size for my coffee mugs. I hate the universal-fit plastic consoles that they sell at auto parts stores, so I thought I would try to come up with something quick. The first draft didn’t fit at all, but the second draft fit alright. The cup holder is still just a pinch snug for my mugs, but they don’t rattle!
I have plans for an addition to hook over the other side of the transmission tunnel as well so that it really holds itself in place, but for now the teeth are working to keep it from moving around.
The floor is made from a draft board calibration sheet and covered in proofgrade veneer. The sides are made from proofgrade maple ply and the cup holder is Baltic birch ply.
