Box for glasses

Postby amanda » Tue Feb 10, 2009 8:46 am

As I refuse to drink wine out of a plastic cup, packing wine glasses has always been a bit of a pain. I usually wrap them in tea towells and pack them into the crockery box, but this weekend I came up with a better idea. I used some corflute from an old For Sale sign, cut it into the right size with a stanley knife, added some slits to it, placed it all into a plastic tub and voila!! - purpose built wine glass box! This one fits 6 wine glasses and 4 coffee cups - you can see my priority is wine over coffee!

Got a pic Amanda??

I am with you, I take crystal glasses, in fact they live in my camper and I carry them wrapped in bubble wrap but your idea sounds better.

Thanks Amanda, it is just the limitations here at work I am sure, home access will be fine. It is funny, I can see some pics but not others....it obviously has to do with how they are loaded.

Thanks Amanda :+

What a great idea. My glasses are still in the box I bought them in but with it being cardboard I have had to treat it very carefully....but now you have answered my prayers....
You are brilliant.
I agree wine is WAY more important than coffee. :cheers

Your camping .................. what's wrong with drinking it straight from the bottle or cutting the corner from the bladder in the cask and sucking it out. :*** :*** :*** :***

No telling tales TBF but damn that port was good straight from the bottle/s ::()

Seriously though that is a neat idea. Like the gypsy girl I have a couple of Bohemia Crystal glasses and am terrified they will break one day.

Don't know about you Derek but I sure get paid out on because of my crystal glasses....but there is no way I am giving them up.

Not giving up my fine bone china tea cup either....
