Lol, they still deliver bottles at home? I thought you can only buy them at the supermarket...

Anyways, nice instructable. Just something simple and unique.

I like the idea very much.
I'll give it 4.5* because the looks could be a little bit better.
It looks strong enough to hold some bottles, I will try it out soon. =]

Thanks! I appreciate the 'Constructive critisism' I'll make it better and post updates.

I'd like that. :)
