Nice tray. I was just thinking about picking up a bottle of scotch from the package store on my way out of work today…

G’day, harry. that is really a slick way to do it. The part I liked the best is the inventive way you have of putting a light on your Makita router!!!!!!!! I have just got out the plunge router from my friend that dies a few years ago and I will try it with the bushing like that. Thank you, Jim

Hi Harry!

What a COOL way to make a COOL tray… custom fit for bottle & glasses!
There is only ONE problem... as far as I can see it…

The Bottle is EMPTY!
You beat us to it!
Oh well… maybe next time… LOL

Thank you!

There is a reason for the decanter being empty Joe. Even when empty it is VERY heavy and now that I have Arthritis in my fingers it’s a two handed job, not very convenient. This shot shows how my nightly medicine is dispensed, it has the added advantage, or possibly disadvantage of giving a “prescribed” amount!

Harry…

You know I was kidding… didn’t you?

Hey, this other picture sure is COOL!
COOL medicine dispenser!
... let’s see… Gin… can’t read the other one… Bourbon?

Do you turn the handles to dispense the medicine… or what… sure looks COOL!

Thank you.

Sorry your arthritis is getting that bad…
My wife has arthritis real bad… hurting her legs & feet more than anything else.
My right hip is acting up… probably arthritis too… bummer…

Thank you & take care…

Harry,

That is Super COOL!
I’ve never seen one of those before!

I used to drink Scotch a lot… before I got married… Then I just stopped… there were better things to do! LOL

A good Martini is nice… even today! ... on special occasions…

Thank you! Very good picture & instructions!

I’m sure glad that Glass isn’t too heavy for you! LOL

In actual fact Joe I rarely drink whiskey these days, I did up to a few months ago and had done for about 30 years but suddenly, for no obvious reason I stopped. As I mentioned in the pdf, I made this tray to demonstrate to a member of the “other” forum how I go about such a project. I don’t know if you noticed last evening when friend George suggested that handles would be nice, so here they are.
