This was my first “serious” WW project. My daughter collects souviner shot glasses, has over 100 of them. The wood is stained poplar with a varnish finish. On this project I learned that cutting that many bridle joints on a flimsy plastic table saw with a $10 blade yieldsa lot of recuts and aggravation. But had fun making it, and even more fun wrapping it in Christmas paper and putting it under the tree.

Nice job Steve. I know what you mean about cutting all those joints. I made a shotglass shelf a few years back and know exactly what you are saying. The shelf looks great and if your daughter likes it, then it was worth the time. Thanks for sharing.

Nicely done, too many cuts for me, maybe that’s why I never built one, oh yea that…. and i’m too lazy.
