This small shelf is very convenient to keep the glasses that are used daily. You can put it on a wall, above the worktop, or fix it inside a closet.

Preparation of the elements of the glass holder
1. The diagram and the dimensions make it possible to understand the realization of this shelf designed for the storage of seven glasses. It is of course possible to modify the dimensions according to the number of glasses to store and the diameter of their foot.
2. Trace the median of the board in the direction of its length and mark on this line, the centers of the holes to be made, spaced 7 cm (between the axes).
3. From the marked points, cut out with a hole saw 50 mm in diameter, the seven holes provided on the edge of which will rest the upside down glasses. Before starting sawing the support, place a martyr board underneath to avoid attacking the surface of the workbench.
4. Secure the already sawed base with the clamps and use the jigsaw to make the pass for each foot of glass.
5. With a clamp, hold the two boards for making the cheeks of the glass holder. Cut with a jigsaw, a pleasing line to the eye. You can, for this, help you from a pattern previously drawn on craft paper.
6. Tighten vertically in the workbench, the board by one of its ends and drill two holes in the end edge, intended to receive two pins.
Assembly of the elements of the glass holder
1. Lay down the two pins on which you have tinted the end with the felt and position the end board on the inside of one of the cheeks. You will thus have the exact mark of the two non-through holes to be drilled on the cheek. You can also use markers positioned in the drilled holes on the end edge of the board.
2. Drill these two marked holes without crossing the cheek. If you are not sure how to do this, place a depth mark on the drill bit or use the drill depth gauge that your drill should be equipped with.
3. Make the assembly of the support board and the cheek after putting in place the two glued pins.
4. Round off all edges with sandpaper either by hand or sander to prepare the piece to receive a decorative finish.
5. Apply with a brush the chosen decorative finish (here a tinting wax). We can, in the same way, pass a stain or even a varnish.
6. Finish by nailing at the top of the back edge of each cheek, a triangular tie capable of supporting the entire production made: wood and glasses included.
