Default bottle tree ?

Hey guys so I got this bright idea for bottles.I have no real question, but I guess I'm just proud of the idea. It took 2 1/2 hours and twelve beers but I think its great.

Nice work, looks like an excellent DIY method for bottle drying

I did miss aline some parts that i will have to correct (maybe on another day with less beer in my belly) but it should hold 60 bottles. I also have to glue it down and router the edge.

I like it. I have a nice bottle tree, but I'm kind of envious now.

Cool, if you're gonna bottle your beer this looks like a good way to drain your bottles.

Could you give us some dimensions? This is awesome and I think I'm going to build one for myself!

Nicely done. That's a step up from my rather simple one I made

The holes a two inches and they are spaced 1 inch apart. The frame was made from some rough cut pine I planed to 3/4 inch and ripped at 3/4. That way frame and the supports are smaller than the space between the hole so the bottles never touch the wood.
