I have a very tiny kitchen and space is extremely limited, my wife asked me to make a coffee mug holder to get some of the mugs out of the kitchen cabinets that were overflowing. I decided to make the spice rack in the same design and stain while I was making the mug rack. The center shelf on the mug rack was an afterthought, hense the reason that standard size mugs do not fit vertically. They’re not perfect but they do the job.

Both racks made from pallet wood and stained with minwax espresso. This was my first attempt at cutting dados (?) with a circular saw and its not perfect, but at least I (sort of) learned something.
