The high heat and humidity of this summer has withdrawn providing a prime climate for back yard lounging. A corner of our yard is dubbed “the hammock nook” because the location is shady and has two trees perfectly spaced to string a hammock. My wife found the uneven ground under the hammock proved tricky to place a wine glass. She requested a holster which could be staked into the ground for smooth and easy glass docking.
I gathered some scraps from the workshop and put this item together for her. The steak is designed to go into the ground at an 85 degree angle toward the user. The angle creates a space under the holster to provide plenty of room (95 degrees) for the foot of the glass. We didn’t give it a genuine test drive yet, but I’m certain it will work. If the boss disagrees I have plenty more scraps in the basement and more ideas for improvement.
