    Elegant solution to the classic problem of the inconveniently located center of gravity of multiple objects. DIY of this would be a cinch.

    pfft. I’m a good enough food runner to be able to carry several oddly shaped wine and/or beer glasses on one tray without tipping anything

    DIY! Too true! Make an Illustrator file out of the images from the site, send it off to to laser it out of your favorite material – done!

    It reduces the klutz moments for those who entertain @ home, but save their skillz for other venues. Should hold multiple ice cream cones well, too.

    For those wanting to DIY and without access to a laser cutter- buy a standard wooden painter’s palette like this:

    Dremel out glass-holding slots. ET VOILA!

    (I’m willing to bet the the original design was at least inspired by, if hacked from, that sort of palette)
