Introduction: Wooden Dowel Soap Dish Holder Rack
In this instructable you'll see: How I made a Soap Dish/Holder, made of pinewood and some dowels! The length of the soap dish is 43cm, the width 16cm, the height 5cm and the diameter of the dowels 6mm.
Firstly, cut all the pieces in the dimensions you want.
In this case the length of the soap dish is 43 cm, the width 16 cm and the height 5 cm.
Now cut the dowels, equal to the width of the structure, in this case 16 cm.
From each end of the wood, measure a distance equal to its width, in this case 1.5 cm, and divide the space between them in smaller spaces of 2 cm.
After you have marked the distances in the wood, get another one you have cut in the same dimensions and screwed them together.
With a try square extend the line that you have already done.
Now with a drill, depending on the diameter of the dowels, open the holes you have marked, In this case I use 6mm.
Now you have 2 pieces with the same holes at the same points.
With a countersink bit, smooth the holes, which will be in the inside of the structure.
It’s time to assemble all the pieces.
Now put the dowels one by one into the holes you have made.
For the dowels not to move from their place, put a nail in each of them, exactly in the center.
Cut around the construction one to two mm, so the dowels and the sides, to be like one single wood.
Sand the entire construction and if you want, smooth all the edges with a router for a more beautiful appearance.

Great idea! Are you going to hang this or leave it on a countertop?
