Here's a departure from the usual peg on the wall method of hanging dishtowels. Simply slip the towel end into one of the "V" grooves and it will stay securely in place until it's time to face that pile of wet dishes. It's also not a bad idea to tie a knot on the end of one towel and keep it in the rack just for drying hands. The rack shown is made from birch, but maple and oak are also good choices.

The tapered and pinned blocks (A&B) provide a rather unique hanging method, resulting in a board that appears to have no visible means of support.

To make the blocks, cut two pieces of 3/« inch thick stock to VA inches (allows for saw kerf) wide by 2 inches long, then face glue and clamp the pieces together. For maximum glue strength, it's important that the grain run in the direction shown.

When dry, locate and drill the two V* inch dowel pin holes, then use a back saw to cut the block at an angle as shown. The front (C) is now made, then part A is glued and firmly clamped in place at a point Vi inch down from the top and centered across the length.

Secure part B to wall with screws. Position part A over part B so that the holes line up, then insert unglued dowel pins. An application of Deftco Danish Oil completes the project.
