Make a Pint Glass Display Rack

In the early 2000's, I traveled sometimes for work.  If a city had a Hard Rock Cafe, I would check it out and pick up a pint glass.  I've collected glasses from 16 cities, so I made a custom display rack. Check out my video of this project below.


I used my X-Carve CNC Woodworking Machine from Inventables to cut out the entire project.
 

I used the Inventables free EASEL online software to design the project.  All of the parts can be cut from two 29" long sections of standard 1x12 boards.  The sign at the top can be customized by simply changing the text.  Click here to open my EASEL project to see how it's designed.


I included dado cuts in the side pieces to accept the three shelves and also holes to make for quick and easy assembly with 8 screws.  I added some hangers on the back and mounted it to the wall with strong drywall anchors.


This display rack holds up to 21 glasses, so I will be able to add to it as I visit other cities with Hard Rock Cafes.  I can look at each glass and remember the story behind it, such as how I got to the Hard Rock Cafe and what the place was like inside.  Thanks for checking out this project!
