Plates – especially if you have them in a range of sizes – can be one of the most oddly difficult things to store in the kitchen. Plate carriers tend to be bulky while rarely seeming to fit enough and stacking dishes is a short road to accidents and damaging your beautiful dishes. When I came across this low profile wooden version from WhiteRiverWoodworks on Etsy, I knew it was going to be a game changer. Handcrafted from maple wood, the bracket has a stain that matches the vast majority of wood cabinet interior finishes and is only 3/4 if an inch high, so it blends in perfectly.

Although almost invisible, this rack can hold up to 16 plates vertically, which is not only significantly more than the average plate rack, but it makes dishes easy to grab and replace (without damaging the dishes either). Of course, that’s if you go for the default size, which you absolutely don’t have to. WhiteRiverWoodworks will cut your wooden plate rack to a custom length at no additional charge. So you can choose to adapt your rack to the exact measurements of your cupboard or even customize your dish rack.

“Wow,” said a recent customer. Owner of WhiteRiverWoodworks “Gary made my order exactly to fit my cabinet and now it’s one of my favorite pieces in my kitchen. I show everyone who comes. I’m so happy I can keep my large plates now, and they look so nice sitting upright in my cabinet. Such a clean look with the elegant wooden stand…thanks, Gary – great craftsmanship!”

And because the racks are made in Kansas City, MO, shipping is fast wherever you are, and the brand offers free returns for 30 days after your rack is delivered. I don’t know about you, but my overall first impression is the shine all around. Come on, Gary.
