My Wife has been after me for years to make her a display cabinet for her shot glass collection. It turns out one wasn’t enough! Red Oak with a dark mahogany stain and laquer finish. Photos are dark but you get the idea. Thanks for looking …..Rick

When I saw this on the projects page I couldn’t help but thinking “that’s awfully nice for a frat house”.

And then I read your description that these are for your wife. Thanks for the laugh.

That is some impressive detail work on the top and bottom plates. Was it all router work or did you do some hand carving?

And are those square dowel pins in the corners? They are a nice touch.

And final question: the final pic shows taller glasses on shelves with dado grooves on each side for a shelf. Are these modular where you can move the shelves around and reconfigure as the collection grows?

That is really nice craftsmanship and I can see something like these in my grandmothers house for her teaspoons and plates, so pardon all the questions.

Nice work. Like the different size compartments for the different size glasses. They turned out very nice.

Thanks for sharing.

Great set of shelves. The different size cavities are a great idea.

Keep it up.
