There was a time when I had such a huge collection of empty beer bottles, I didn't know what to do with them all. I was too lazy to recycle them and get the deposit, so they just keep kept sitting there, mocking me. And it's not a cool collection, you know? My brother-in-law has all sorts of unique beer bottles from all over the world, many unopened (but most of them empty, of course). He displays them proudly, and I feel jealous. Not an intense, burning jealousy, but more of a mild, passive-aggressive jealousy. But this isn't about him and his cool bottles, it's about me and my regular ones. Well, I guess it's about anyone that has beer bottles, but please stop interrupting and let me finish my story.
So back in the day I had lots of beer bottles, and didn't know what to do with them.
That day was yesterday.
But today I have a mission! I turns out that you can make some pretty cool shelves out of beer bottles. Don't believe me? Have a look at Hacknmod's gallery of beer bottle shelves
, suggested to us by a reader, Joe.
The ones like those pictured here that have holes drilled out for the necks of the bottles look like they would be more stable, but they also look like a lot more work. My shelving unit is going to rely on gravity and balance. And epoxy. Lots of epoxy.
