What's the best way to carry multiple wine glasses at once? A restaurant in Oita Prefecture in southern Japan has found a solution in the Stemglass Tray, pictured above.

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 http://www.ponoko.com to laser it out of your favorite material – done!
this undermines profession servers w/ actual talent
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: http://bit.ly/paletteDIY
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)
