Beer flights are all the rage, right? Why not host your own? Make this simple and inexpensive beer flight holder!
First, shop the wood which is key for a great burn effect. Don't get the cheapest wankiest pine, get the middle grade that still has lots of grain but is straighter.

I used 1x4 and cut it based on the logo I was adding in the center as well as the glassware size for four beers.

With simple butt joints, this thing is a breeze to make. Pilot drill some holes and bang in some galvanized roofing nails for a cool industrial look.

Sorry for the lame photo but next is drilling out your holes with a hole saw. Here they're based on the size of the glass again.

Lastly? Burn those buggers with a propane torch. Outside. Don't burn yourself or your house down, ok? I evened up the color with a touch of stain then sealed them up with several coats of a heavy use polyurethane.

Not the best photo again, my bad. I attached a sliver of wood on the edge there to hold a coaster. They'll use the coaster to write all the beer names on and it'll have the logo on the back.
Spiffy, yeah? Super cheap, built in less than a half hour. Be sure to click the link below for more info!
