DIY Pourover Coffee Stand


Thanks to the genius craft of a new favorite pourover coffeeshop in our neighborhood, I’ve been converted into a believer–a pourover coffee believer, that is. As Serious Eats so eloquently explains it, “[Pourover coffee] can hold myriad subtle and fanciful flavors that can get lost in the sludge of a French press, or the uneven extraction of most automatic drip machines.” After using a combination of a Keurig and French Press for the last 5 years, I’m excited about learning more about the art of making pourover coffee at home and switching up our morning coffee routine.

Remember the DIY Gilded Accordion Sconce project from last month? We’ll the pourover stand uses the leftover lamp stand from that project!

Step 1. Cut the wood dowel on the stand down to 11″ (not including the thickness of the round stand). Measure 11″ up from the top of the round base, and mark with pen. Use hack saw to cut down the wood stick.

Step 2. Sand down the raw top edge of the dowel until smooth.

Step 3. Lay down a drop cloth or newspaper in a well ventilated area. Remove the “T” screw from the ring clamp, and apply a coat of spray paint to the stand, clamp and clamp screw. Let the paint set for 20 minutes and apply a second coat. Alloy to dry overnight (10 hours minimum).


Step 4. Slide the clamp ring over top of the wood dowel, and tighten the “T” screw.

Step 5. Place the glass filter on the clamp, followed by a paper filter, slide a mug underneath and you’re all set up to create yummy pourover coffee at home! Check out the instructions over at Serious Eats on how to create the perfect cuppa joe.

    This is such a cool project. My husband has been making coffee this way for years, and my beef with it is that it splashes coffee splatters all over the wall behind his contraption! It drives me crazy, especially since I’m not a coffee drinker! Do you have this problem? What to do? BTW, I came here through Centsational Girl’s BOTB on your cool sconces. Looks like a great blog!

      Hi Amy–I hear ya! I’ve found that by lowering the filter so it sits just above my coffee cup helps minimize the (annoying) splashing. Thanks for swinging by!

    Hi there! I’m in the process of creating something similar and have not found the glass funnel/coffee dripper anywhere! Your link above is broken. Do you remember where you purchased it from?

    Thanks a lot for the idea. I really need an adjustable stand like this for the different coffee thermos I have. Someone can even buy an universal lab support instead of making it.
