Nice! Very inventive. I suppose that the best part is preparing the stock: IE emptying the bottles. ;)

How did you attach the hardware?

That's pretty cool although I would have gone with a bottle from a team with 17 World Championships.;-)

I was wondering if you could soak off the labels and put them back on so they read right side up.

Might work with some thicker labels. I used to pull Lagunitas labels off and slap them on my beer fridge.

Yes I think so. These are plastic not paper so I can probably peel them off.
