    Beer Tote

    This week I'm getting in some last minute gifts in the shop. A co-worker sent me a link to a beer tote, this is my proto-type, I'll be making the final ones a 1/4" - 1/2" wider/longer to accommodate the shorter fat bottles too, they won't fit in this one.

    The rest will probably be from white oak, this one was cherry since I had a bunch of scrap to use up.

    Very cool. Maybe you could make it wide enough to accommodate bottles being in those insulated holder thingies?

    Looks good! I've seen some that instead of the metal handle, the divider panel was taller, tapered up from the ends, and a handhold was cut in and routed for comfort... Both look fine!
    Aloha,

    Darren shared those plans with me a few days ago. I made a version too.

    If you use those plans, you may want to double check the sizes.

    I made mine to make sure it fit the shorter stubby bottles as well as the long tall ones as well, and extended the sides up a little higher.

    I made a couple of prototypes first that have since gone up the chimney.

    Really a quick and easy project though.
