I wanted to come up with a dosing solution which I could make myself and fit in with my worktop.

So this is version one having got the idea from a lot of coffee shop visits & the forum. I had a piece of oak, gifted, and managed to find some flat bottomed glass test tubes. Each tube contains a single dose - perhaps version two I would have larger tubes to allow double doses. The block needs an oil putting on it to protect it and finish the project off.

Feedback welcome on improvements.

Looking good. Might I suggest a recess for the leveling tool too?

Ah yes - I was thinking about this. I left the space as a way of holding onto the block but quickly started putting the leveller there. 

When the weather cools down I think I might explore cutting it.

I’ve got 9g in each however my main coffee I use 17.5g so I have some built in tolerance for grinder retention.
