The Shot Board

two different Shot Boards, used for serving multiple shots of your favorite beverage. In my neck of the woods, these are commonly seen at Bars that make a business of celebrating Oktoberfest. The first one I made is the picture with the all clear shotglasses. The second is in the other two pictures, the one with my hand is just to show the necessity of the length of board behind the handle for leverage against your arm. Fun simple project, on the first one I used an old handsaw handle as the pattern for the handle, on the second I just winged it. Simple attachment of handle to board with wood screws from the bottom. Shot glass depressions are made with a 1 1/2” Forstner bit. (many shot glasses are 1 1/4” at their base. Finished with several coats of a Marine grade varnish, when in use these tend to get liquid spilled on them alot. Prosit!

Welcome to Lumberjocks! Thanks for sharing this project. Looks like these could be made for a good many bars. You may have quite a business!
I always like to see something made that fills a need somewhere.

Just delivered the Shot Board to my client, which created orders for two more from her friends. Never know what people will want?!
