Modern design and Tinkertoy construction team up to make this eye-catching rack fun and sophisticated at the same time. A great addition to any kitchen, it displays your favorite dishes in style while keeping them within easy reach for daily use. Store dinner plates, salad plates, cups, saucers, mugs or bowls. Need more space? Make your rack wider or taller. In fact, you adjust the design to fit just about any dish—or space.

Make the side panels

Mill blanks for the side panels (A, Fig. A, Fig B). Rip them slightly oversize in width and cut them to final length. Locate the large dowel holes and lay out the curved profile on the outside face of each side panel blank (Fig. B; Note: The holes must be identically located in both blanks for the rack to go together properly). Then drill 3/4″ dia. holes for the wedged dowels and a 1″ dia. hole for the front dowel (Photo 1).
