I saw this in a magazine a while back, liked the idea and had a few minutes today to throw this together.

Using scraps meant some ½ “ and some ¾”. Made do with what I had.

Just pinned and glued.

The one in the article just had one shelf with a row of holes.

I wanted two shelves with holes to keep the glue bottles securely straight up and down.

Not a big deal, but it will solve for me a long-time dilemma as to how to store glue.

If anyone wants measurements, let me know and I will post them.

Best

Bruce

Bruce, that is a cool idea and a nicely built rack for them. That way you always have the glue by the nozzle – ready to come out and the air is on the bottom. Super job!!..............cheers, Jim

Looks good, Bruce. I may need to borrow that idea. What size holes did you use?

Nice idea, but I do not use glue bottles.

I need to do this. Just this weekend I had to put two bottles leaning at angle to get the dregs down to the top.

I put mine on my rolling clamp rack.

Maybe that would prevent the slug I seem to continually cleaning out of the nozzle.

Stellar job on the build, bud, and stellar idea…I like it….But what if you want to use one of them flat bottles, like hide glue…?...:)....Looks like there may be another one in the works for those..!!

Thanks for the comments guys.

I almost didn’t post it and then realized if I liked/needed something like this, others might also….sooooooo

CB_Cohick I used a 2 3/8” Forstner that I bought for a clock project years ago. Had to rotate each hole just 10 quick revolutions on the spindle sander to get each hole just right before I eased the edges.

I think a 2 1/2” bit would be perfect, but $$$$. Glad I already had this one. Holes are on 3 1/4” centers.

I used and old cutoff block of yella pine to make one, as in singular. A very useful item for 5 minutes of work and no cash. But I like yours much more as you can store several types of glue in one place, compact, transportable, and ready to use whenever you like.

That is a great idea. What would also be nice is a freestanding one to keep near the workbench or assembly table. Thanks for sharing! :)
