I made this shot glass shelf for a young friend of mine. It’s made with bloodwood and pine. it is 32” tall by 10” wide.

When I went online looking for ideals all I found was big boxes with little cubby holes that you hang on the wall.
Well I decided to step out of the box (sorry) and make something that can also be used for things of different sizes and shapes.
As I did with the Quilt Rack (first project posted) that I made….I look online and they are all pretty much the same basic patterns.
I was never one to follow others when I do my projects. and I can never keep to the plan, It will ! change a couple of times be for it’s done.

One question though …. Is your shop all red now from all that bloodwood?

Nice job Tom!

I like it allot! I have a rather large collection (250+) of shot glasses myself, the only thing that may need to be considered is that if it is mounted to the wall near a door, the slight vibrations from the door closing and opening over time will cause the glasses to shift and some fall off, I have lost 4 glasses in this manner over the years. Great work!

As usual…impressive work! I think I have found a challenging piece for you over here. My meager woodworking skills couldn’t hack it, but I have no doubt you could.

I like your attitude about changing. I always remind myself of an old Molokai saying that an unaimed arrow never misses…
I really do like this design.

Do you think possibly using a slightly oversized forstner bit for the base of the glasses could prevent them from falling off so easy?

interpim….... I was going to use a Forster bit but that would have limited what you could have put on it and I wanted it to be used for other things if needed.
But I do appreciate your input. This is why I love Lumberjocks so much.
Thank you
