Have a shot

What do you do when you have over 500 shot glasses…. You must build shelves, BIG shelves and sometimes one is not enough.
We have been collecting shout glasses for years, everywhere we go we have to get a shot glass. With all these shot glasses I have made a couple of smaller shelves but we quickly out grew them. This time I decided to go large and we still outgrew that one. So what do you do when you out grow one, you build two. I hope we don’t outgrow these anytime soon as there is not enough room to build another one.
The shelves are made out of hard maple and have adjustable shelves using shelf pins. They were built recessed into the wall where 2 windows were before we added a bedroom to the back of the house.

Nice to see someone else collects these goodies. I really like your display area. Good idea to use the window cavity.

So, if you keep buying shot glasses you’ll have to add on to your house again?

Choose wisely, my friend. And great job!

You of course; have to make sure they all work!

Like my bottle openers, research and development can get expensive.

Very neat idea and execution!

Well done. I have a minor collection of 50 or so… and three small wall cabinets to hold them. But, no room for expansion. I need to copy your design and make them a bit bigger… by 500%. I have made a point to take a sip of beverage from each… but over a period of time…
