Bourbon Flight Tasting Trays

Recommended Posts

I have way too much time on my hands so i decided that I needed some nice wooden "trays" to use for bourbon tasting.  A trip to Lowe's resulted in finding a nice piece of laminated wood that I thought would work.  It was 2.5" square and 3" long

It was then cut into 4 equal size pieces (9" each)

I needed a 2" diameter recess to fit my glassware so I purchased a 2" Forstner drill bit

I used the bit to drill 3 holes in each 9" section

After drilling all holes the pieces were sanded and then, since I liked the color and grain of the wood enough, finished with a clear polyurethane finish.  Once dry, 2" felt pads were placed in each depression to finish the look.  The pads are removable if the need arises.

I think the finished product looks pretty good.
