Are you seeking for a method to display your Easter eggs…
…that is both easy and attractive? Or maybe to spruce up your weekend brunch table with a touch of farmhouse style? Today, I’m going to demonstrate how to make a wooden egg holder. In here, we have best egg holder ideas on amazon that you might want to see.
Egg holder or egg cup, sometimes called an egg server, is an item of tableware used for serving and holding boiled eggs within their shell. It may also be referred to as an Easter Egg Holder which is often made from wood with a hole in the top through which the yolk can pass when being eaten by the diner. The term “egg cup” usually refers only to those that have holes on both sides so they are not flipped over into boiling water.
A similar concept was developed by Japanese tea masters who would use small cups to serve hot drinks like coffee and tea. In Japan it’s common practice to place one piece of paper inside another before placing them together on a tray. This way if there is any spillage during cooking, the mess will be contained between two pieces of paper rather than spread all over the countertop.

How To Make a Wooden Egg Holder
- First measure out where on the side wall of the container that you want the egg holder to go. You need this measurement because we are going to cut our dowels at 45 degrees so they fit snugly into place. Now mark the spot with tape or chalk if using spray paint. If you don’t have a chalk marker then simply draw lines across the wood with pencil first before cutting them off later.
- Next take one of your dowels and lay it flat against the marked line on the backside of the board. Using a ruler or straight edge guide along the top of the dowel, hold it firmly in position while marking the bottom end of the dowel at a right angle to the base. Then repeat these steps until all four sides of the dowel are lined up perfectly. This step ensures that when you drill holes through the front of each dowel, the hole aligns exactly with the marks made by the ruler/straightedge tool.
- Once finished drilling the holes, remove the dowel from its original position and set it aside. Repeat the same process with another piece of dowel. When both pieces are done, use a utility knife to carefully trim away the excess material around the edges of the dowels leaving only 1 inch on either side.
- Take one of the trimmed dowels and attach it to the inside corner of the container using glue. Attach the other dowel to the outside corner of the container next to the first dowel. Use more glue to secure the two dowels together. Let dry completely overnight.
- The next day, apply some finishing touches such as sanding down the rough spots and painting over everything to match your décor. A light coat of clear polyurethane sealer can also help protect the finish after years of storage.
- Finally, insert your eggs and enjoy!
