Picture of Scrap Wood Wine Glass Rack

This is a handsome wine glass rack made from scrap wood and wooden dowels. It takes about an hour to make using only a few hand tools.

Step 1: Tools & Materials

Picture of Tools & Materials


  • Circular saw
  • Hand drill
  • 7/16" drill bit + countersink bit
  • Palm sander
  • Tape measure, straight edge, & pencil


  • Scrap wood (I used a piece of 3/4" Plyboo)
  • Wooden dowels, 7/16" diameter


It looks great! You're right, those square drive countersunk screws are a cool touch!

Thanks! Those are my default for just about every project with exposed fasteners. I recently found out they're actually called Robertson screws and they're a Canadian invention.

Neat project! Great detail. Thanks! Plus, I got a chuckle. I was wondering what folks were finding interesting about the screws. Thought I was missing something. Up here, those are mostly all we use, eh ;)

One of the great Canadian Inventions- they're pretty much all I use too!
