Glass Plate Holders have numerous uses. To own one, learn how to build a glass plate rack, check out the article here to view in full.

Glass plate racks often are used by glass etchers, painters and other hobbyists. They are used for drying and storing glass plates. Plate racks like these often are constructed out of acrylic and hold anywhere from 10 to 15 plates. Working with acrylic is similar to working with wood. Power tools intended for wood, such as table saws, circular saws and jigsaws, are used when working with acrylic. Anyone with a woodworking background can complete this task with ease.

  • 1. Raise the dato blade so it is 3 inches above the table. Position the fence on the table saw 1-inch from the dato blade.
  • 2 Set the square stock on the table perpendicularly against the fence. Run the stock over the blade to create a 3-inch deep, 1/2-inch wide groove.
  • 3 Position the fence 2 inches away from the blade and make another cut using the same process. Continue making cuts by moving the fence in 1-inch increments, until you have 14 grooves.
