@Nicknak would you be able to make a portafilter stand similar to the niche one but without the hole in the bottom in either walnut or blackwood? If so, would you be kind enough to PM me with cost?

No problems , Walnut might be cheaper .. Blackwood is quite expensive in larger bits . I’ll Pm you ..Blackwood is lovely and comes up really shiny 👍

Nick has done a sterling job with these and both made to my exact measurements as I wanted to ensure the PF sits horizontal when in the rest to assist an even tamp.

Massive improvement over my previous homemade setup, so really pleased with this and nice to have a properly handcrafted item

Totally agree.
These were oak, in case anyone looking for the same.

Fabulous!!  I'd love the tamper and portafilter holder, could you give me an idea of price @Nicknak   My machine is a Lelit Bianca if that helps with sizing.

Hi @Nicknak further to your pm, these are the pics I was talking about.  Could you do a portafilter holder to fit a naked and spouted one?
