How to Build Stair Liquor Bottle Display

Updated February 21, 2017

Stair liquor bottle displays can be used on bar tops or inside liquor cabinets. Tiered displays create a means for displaying liquor bottles and speciality items and keep bottles within easy reach. Creating a movable liquor display can provide bottle access whenever and wherever a bar is needed. Move the bottle display from an indoor location to an outdoor patio or even use it off-site when setting up a bar for a neighbourhood or business function. Tiered bottle displays can be built as one long unit or in separate smaller units.

Decide the dimensions of the tiered display. For example, a 3-tiered display holding 12 bottles can be built using an overall width of 17 inches and an overall depth of 12 inches. Each step rises 3 1/2 inches with a depth of 4 inches.

Build the display in graduated platforms that stack one on top of the other. Design the platforms using the dimensions established in Step 1. Use wood or Plexiglas to build the platform and the appropriate construction tools for the chosen material.

Build the first platform (the bottom step in the display) in the example as a 3 1/2 inch high, 17 inch wide and 12 inch deep platform. Enclose the platform on all sides including the bottom.

Build the second platform (the second step in the display) in the example as a 17 inch wide, 3 1/2 inch high, 8 inch deep platform. Enclose the platform on all sides except the bottom.

Build the third platform (the third step in the display) in the example as a 17 inch wide, 3 1/2 inch high, 4 inch deep platform. Enclose the platform on all sides, except the bottom.

Use wood glue to adhere each tier to the one below. Align the back and sides of the platform with the one below.

Apply a 1/2 inch rubber foot to each of the four corners of the bottom of the display unit. Inset the rubber feet about 1/2 inch from the edges of the platform.

Finish wood platforms with a desired stain and sealer.
