What kind of beer is best for this?  Is any beer hurt in the process?  What is a PVC? Can I mount this on that awesome deal custom rack?


ps:  Nice instructions, thanks!
For this process, cheaper seems to work the best as you may have to repeat several times to truly get an empty bottle.
PVC (also known as poor man's lumber) is the most utilized material in a man cave ( right up there with duct tape).
Yes,
You can mount these on Annie's rack ... ?
Lol!!!
Have fun and make something beautiful

... and I got a lot of people asking how I made the fluted ends on the rod holders...

To me, it looks more like a clarinet than a flute.
Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way when you criticize them, you are a mile away from them and you have their shoes.

PVC is poly vinyl chloride.

Old thread, I know...playin' catch up...lol

When I did mine a few years ago, I took advantage of my woodworking skills/tools and routed a 5/8" wide slot before I flared the pipe out (had to make a bit of a jig hold the pipe and guide the router.   I also found that I liked the flare for this better with a champagne bottle.  I heated the pipe sections in the oven at 200ish degrees for 30 minutes or so and that made the pipe (Schedule 40 electrical conduit) nice and flexible.  When I did the flares I made sure I had a coupler fitted over the bottoms so they'd maintain shape for later gluing and just did them one at a time with insulated gloves shaping them to the bottle, then placing each in the freezer for a few minutes to cool back down.  I'm happy with the results as far as the pipe goes...want to rebuild the overall assembly for other reasons.  Will post a step by step when I do that...

Always walk a mile in someone's shoes before criticizing them.  That way when the criticizing begins, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

Why not use a pot of boiling water? No, dummy, not to drink!  To heat the pipe.

I guess if you wanted to fire up the outside burner and burn a bunch of propane or steam up LaCasa, that would be an option...lol...took at least 20 minutes at 200 before I found schedule 40 conduit pliable enough for my liking.
