If you ask me where this idea came from, I honestly would have to say ?. Some time in the first week of August I found a bunch of these mini bottles that had been collected and given to me over the years. I decided to build a box for them and put them out of the way somewhere. Fast forward 7 weeks later when I started, things started clicking and changing from a simple storage box to something to display them in, and or use. ha ha.
Suddenly I wanted a safari – tropical look to it, so Zebra wood was chosen for the main body. The rest is just scraps I have laying around and added to give it a shocking appearance.
I made 3 tiers to better display the merchandise, added a couple shop glasses, bar open sign for a laugh, and the crossbones because it was there. The footrest is a dowel rod that may be changed over to a brass rod if I find one somewhere. It also holds the front level when open.
The front swings down as a shelf as you choose your favorite drink and the top is used as the actual bar.
Lumber used, Zebra wood, Padauk, Purpleheart, Pear, and finished with lacquer.
I hope you enjoy this one. I sure did. Thanks for looking.
