Finding a place to mount a shop towel rack close enough to the work bench was becoming a head scratcher so… Using 3 1/2” x 3/4” poplar and 3/4” red oak dowel a rack was made so that it could use the dog holes in the work bench. The holes were bored with a 3/4” forester bit then the dowels were glued in place. The lower portion of the dowels were slighty tampered for ease on entery into the dog holes. The towel rack was then mounted on the top of upper board to allow more working room on the work bench and so that the paper towels could be easily torn off one sheet at a time. The bottom board acts as a movable stop for clamping in work projects. When not in use the new rack can be stored under the bench or on the wall.
-- Never board, always knotty, lots of growth rings
