Glue Bottle Rack

Waiting for glue to flow from the bottom of the glue bottle to the tip is one of my pet peeves in the workshop. Instead of waiting, I store a couple of bottles in this handy rack that keeps the bottles upside-down so the glue is always ready to go.

Expandable design. I made my rack to hold the two bottles that I use the most, but it could easily be expanded by making the centre sections longer. The whole rack is made from plywood. Tongues cut on the ends of the centre sections slip into trenches cut in the sides.

To add even more versatility, I drilled a large hole in the bottom tray that is sized to hold a disposable plastic cup. A glue brush rests in a groove cut next to the plastic cup hole. Excess glue drips into the cup.

SAFETY IN THE WORKSHOP Safety devices, such as riving knives, guards on table saws and guards over router bits have been deliberately left out of the line drawings in Australian Woodsmith projects in order to make them easier to follow. It goes without saying that where safety devices have been supplied by the manufacturers you should use them. We encourage the use of push sticks as good work practice.
    Exercise vigilance and the greatest of care when using power tools, whether stationary or portable. Keep all your tools sharp and well maintained. Wear protective eyewear, a dust mask and a hearing protector when appropriate. By limiting distractions and developing safe work practices you will go a long way to avoiding workshop accidents. So, work safe fellow woodworkers.  -Editor
