This towel rack is essentially a replica of the towel rack that was in my grandparent’s house. The back boards are roughly 6 1/2” tall X 5” wide and the perpendicular piece that accepts the two dowel rods is 4” X 4”. All the edges of the bracket assembly were rounded over at the router. I turned the dowels on the lathe and mount them into the wall bracket. The brackets are hung by a key hole slot that is routed into the back side. The wood is Utile hardwood that was left over form a cabinet project I am currently building. The finish is General Finishes Arm R Seal in satin.

The last picture is of the original I used for reference. It appears to be stained pine with common dowel rods and screwed strait to the wall.

Thanks for stopping by,

Matthew Stillwell

I like your towel rack. Great job. I’ve made many but never a double holder. Good idea.

Nice job. I made one of those a while back and it wasn’t anywhere near that nice. Well done!!!
