This is a display cabinet to house a shot glass collection. I started a blog during construction—mainly for the customer to follow along as I made progress. I hand cut through dovetails for the main carcass (hidden under the moldings). Made from red oak per the customer’s request. I am still waiting for the LED lighting system to arrive before I deliver and install it. She wants it wall mounted, so there is a french cleat built into the back.

Finish is multiple coats of oil/poly blend, then buffed out with 0000 steel wool/wax to a smooth sheen. Silky smooth, except for the pores which I did not fill.

Comments/critiques welcome.

Looks like first class cabinetry work to me, and a nice design. Are there really so many different kinds of shot glasses that they’re interesting?

Mike,

To answer your question, yes and no. I have been collecting shot glasses for about 10 years now. I travel for a living and when I go some where I have’t been I try to pick up a shot glass. I also have friends do the sae thing. There appears to be about 10 physical variatons but there are lots and lots of different designs.

Thanks for the comments. As they say, Mike, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I am always amazed at what people collect—pet rocks, action figures, beanie babies, etc. But heck, if they pay me for a cabinet to put them in, I think they are all interesting!
