I posted this in another thread, but figured i'd post it here as well. I made this out of a bread crate. Had to cut it a bit so the bottles fit. Hold abouts 56 12oz bottles perfectly...Best price...free.

Can't really call it a bottle drying tree like most others make on here or buy...i figured i'd put my 45-50 bucks elsewhere instead of a piece of plastic to hold bottles...anyways...enjoy the pics..

First pic..shows the bread crate, with foldable handles..

Second pic..shows the modified on the left side, to open up the holes so the neck of the bottles fit in, i used wire cutters to cut the slats...on the right is the unmodified..

Third pic...turn crate upside down, and enjoy your homemade bottle drying rack.

Nice Work. I am currently using two soda bottle crates similar to this. I just put a towel on the bottom and lean them against the sides. I'll have to take a look at it to see if I could do something similar to it.

Cool.

For the really low-effort solution, I just leave my bottles standing right-side up on a towel with a fan blowing across the tops. They're dry in under a day. Quick sanitizer squirt on bottling day and they're good to go!
