I’m not sure when it happened, but I became one of those gals who loves her plateware. I mean, what’s up with that? Dinner and dessert plates, platters, bowls and don’t get me started with serving trays…my heart’s all a flutter!

So, when it came time to create my next Kreg Tool project, which happened to coincide with my cousin, Tom’s birthday, I decided to combine my love of trays with his love of beer. Enter today’s how to: DIY a beer flights tasting tray…and a little som’sin-som’sin extra!

Low and behold, this beer flights tray can also be used for liqueur, nuts, hot sauces, candies or anything you wish to enjoy tasting and labeling for guests. With just a few supplies, including scrap wood you’ve been die’n to use, you can make a set of four in no time! Bottom’s up!
