Showcase cover image for Shot Glass Collector's Display Case

Project Information

I built these for a couple who collects shot glasses from all around the world. Each display holds 112 shot glasses, some regular shot glasses and some tall shot glasses. If you look closely in the middle of the 2 displays you can see the end piece the holds the glass for the display on the left, that slides from right-to-left to enclose the display to keep dust off the shot glasses. They are made from White Oak, stained in Golden Oak and finished with Deft Lacquer.

This is very cool. I have my grandmothers salt & pepper shaker collection collecting dust in the attic until I can build a display case. Did you do this from a plan? I don't have that many salt & pepper shakers and their size is bigger than shot glasses, can you give me an idea of how you did this?

Very cool Sawhorse. I like addition of the glass to keep the dust out. What was the hardest part of building this?

Robbi and Bill,
No, I did not have a plan, thought this up on my own…fretted about it for weeks before starting. The interior grid framing was the most difficult part, or should I say the layout and planning, once I decided how it was going to look and how I plan to do it, it was fairly simple to cut out. I made a jig similar to a box joint jig and used a dado blade to cut slots in 1/4" oak so that they would innerlock with each other in each section and thus provide strength to entire section. The sections are partitioned by 1/2" oak to add additional strength to the overall display.
