Default Brewery flight holder

Hi folks,

I want to design and build a beer flight holder for our local beer co-op:

Bathtub Row*Brewing Co-op - Home

It needs to hold 6 glasses using 1 7/8" diameter holes. Ideally, it would be shaped like a bathtub, or have some sort of bathtub / bathroom theme associated with it. I need to crank out at least 10 of these. I'm thinking of layering up 3/4 ply or stock and shaping it into a bathtub, but I fear it'll weigh a lot and take a lot of labor to build.

I'm doing this for free...I'm a life-time member

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

-Rob

Hmmm, maybe build up of 2 layers. Top layer treat like a router bowl (1st pic) and then simple template for the second layer (2nd, 3rd pix). Some variation on that may do it.

Will this be hand-held or mounted?

If you're not restricted to a bathtub shape, you might consider modelling it after the old ceramic wall mounted glass/toothbrush holders - 6 holes for glasses and a couple more for a toothbrush or two. The toothbrushes might come in handy after a few beers - wouldn't know from experience, but I've heard that somewhere
You could get away with 1/2 inch material. The tub idea is nice, but a lot of work.

Some folks call me Vince - other folks call me...........

Thanks Phil and Vince!

Needs to be hand held. A bartender needs to carry it, without spilling any beer.

Hey, Rob; you know the 'ol 'Form follows Function' adage!
It's the bathtub theme that's creating the obstacle to carrying the glasses,
I agree with Vince that 1/2" ply, over the short distance that two rows X three full glasses occupy, is more than adequate.
The added weight of the tub walls is more of a problem for carrying than it is for stressing the base.

A tub shape could have two handles on the ends to ease in carrying:


I think that would be preferable to the 'paddle handles' many of the designs seem to sport.
The time to cut out and glue all the walls, similar to making a wooden cup, would be the time crazy part.
But, it would be a labor of love, and something treasured by anyone who gets one.

MAKE SURE to put your name, and a year of creation on the bottom.
They will become heirlooms, and many many years after you have become dirt, people will still marvel at them.

Best of success to you!

Hey Moz, how'd you get a photo of Sticky's bath tub?

When everything around you is going to pot, get out in the workshop.

Maybe something like this. Perhaps add an extra layer for the lip of the tub to be pronounced.
