Plates — especially if you have them in a range of sizes — can be one of the more curiously difficult things to store in the kitchen. Plate racks tend be bulky while rarely seeming to fit enough and stacking dishes is a short road to accidents and damaging your beautiful dishware. When I ran into this low-profile wood version from WhiteRiverWoodworks on Etsy, I knew it was a game-changer. Hand crafted from maple wood, the rack has a hue that matches a vast majority of wood cabinet interior finishes and a height of only 3/4 if an inch, so it blends right in.
While nearly invisible, this rack can hold up to 16 plates vertically which is not only far more than the average cabinet plate rack, but it makes the dishes both easy to grab and replace (without harming the dishes either). Of course, that’s if you go with the default size, which you totally don’t have to. WhiteRiverWoodworks will cut your wooden plate rack to a custom length without any extra charge. So, you can choose to match your rack to your cabinet’s exact measurements or even customize your dish display.
“Wow,” said one recent customer. WhiteRiverWoodworks‘s owner “Gary made my order exactly to fit my cabinet and now it is one of my favorite pieces in my kitchen. I show everyone who comes over. I’m so happy I get to keep my large plates now, and they look so nice sitting upright in my cabinet. Such a clean look with the sleek wooden rack…thank you, Gary — great craftsmanship!”
And because the racks are made in Kansas City, MO, shipping is fast no matter where you’re located, and the brand offers free returns for 30 days after your rack is delivered. I don’t know about you, but my first impression overall is brilliance all around. Go, Gary.
