Shot Barrel – Barrel-Shaped Shadowbox

We have a collection of neat shot glasses, mostly from medieval fairs. I wanted to make a stylish home for them and decided that they would look best in a barrel – a Shot Barrel! And in order to save on space, it would have to be a thin slice, just deep enough for the shots. Enjoy, and please share if you found this interesting! And as always, remember to be Inspired!

Stackable Wooden Shot Glasses – with a Dragon!

Want to turn something useful and stackable, following an easy pattern? Then the wooden shot glasses are just the thing for you (and you can ignore the dragon part, too). Beverage containers on the lathe are not that new, but these are also easy to store because they stack! And in addition to that, they can be customized in different ways and this technique will still work!

Watch the video, and read more about the planning of this and possible finishes!
