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


  • 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

<p>It looks great! You're right, those square drive countersunk screws are a cool touch!</p>
<p>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.</p>
<p>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 ;)</p>
<p>One of the great Canadian Inventions- they're pretty much all I use too!</p>
<p>would look good in a restraunt </p>
hi iv just made this today and I'm thinking of making a blog of redesigning my flat would you mind if I tagged you in it when I post it (might be a few months away) iv also used the same idea to make a coat hanger
<p>Please do! Good idea, adapting it for a coat rack.</p>
