This is a wall-mounted stein rack that was custom made for a Chief that was leaving my unit. The stein rack is built from 3/4” walnut and maple. I made the Hap Arnold Army Air Corps wings from 1/2” maple and hand sanded each piece. Coins are from 308/309/310th Aircraft Maintenance Units as well as the 756th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron coin. The glass steins are each etched with a unit/squadron patch, and hang on cast iron metal hooks. The spacer blocks help the steins “hang right” and I made them from walnut scraps (about 1” thick). At the bottom, there is a cast iron bottle opener. The back has two metal eyelets that are screwed in, and a hole can be drilled at the bottle opener for extra mounting support if needed.
