so me and the wood shop teacher put thoughts together and came up with plans for this shot glass shelf. ive really not made much progress because im trying to figure out measurements now on the space between each shelf and how tall i want it. i do know in the back of the shelf will be two glass mirriors to get a reflection of the backsides of the glasses. i will also be putting a door in front with probably a glass center piece. for any suggestions or idead please reply back to this post thanks!!!

Mikey, I would go for a 3” shelf spacing. This should work for those oddball glasses you may come across, plus give the mirror a chance to be seen. Good luck.

Looks looks your coming along very well with your plan. I like the mirrored back, You can set it into a groove in the back of your side and top and bottom pieces.

When working with the mirror, be careful not to scratch the grey paint on the back, you will see it forever.
I have used contact paper to protect the coating and just left it in place after the shelf or box was done.

Maybe some LED’s to splash light around all that glass??

just some ideas …

i like the light idea. next time you’re up at the mall check out Spencers, Lowes, Wal-mart, and Jo-Anne Fabric (or Michael’s) and see what they have in the lighting departments
