This was another project for the local Joe’s. The first picture shows my final version.

The rack is required to hold bar glasses that have various sized feet, and various sized necks. The glasses are much larger than your average wine glass so a standard wine glass rack wouldn’t work.

The second photo shows my first failed attempt. the rails that the glasses rested on were measured to be snug but not tight to the glasses. What I found out was that glass manufacturers aren’t the best at getting every single glass to have the exact same dimensions. Some of the glasses of the same style were too small and they fell out constantly, others were too big and wouldn’t slide in. The bartenders had tried to force a few in and actually broke the rack at one point.

So, I came up with the second design, it is basically made of 2×4’s and 1×2’s that have had their edges cleaned up on a jointer. The gap was made so that the daiquiri glasses could slide in easily, while the height of the 2×4 prevented the glasses with the narrower necks from being able to rock from side to side and let the foot slip loose.
