Next weekend is Labor Day in the U.S. That means picnics and barbecues! Here’s a simple project you can make this weekend and have ready for next weekend. It’s a little caddy to hold paper plates and napkins. The center divider slides to keep the napkins from blowing away.

I can’t decide what I like better, Wyatt’s song or your project.

Hey Steve,

I didn’t even know that something like a picnic tote exists. Now that I’ve seen one I want to build it, but I don’t have a use for it. A classical dilemma.

The two different versions of the video are a good first start but you shouldn’t forget the hard of hearing (sign language) and also produce a mere audio version.

Keep up the good work!

I liked Both versions…
... I think I liked the Song better… LOL

Thank you!

I wonder how that idea would work in making a device to place a Cookbook in to hold it open, etc.?

Hi Steve,

Don’t worry about the audio track on my account since I watch your videos with the sound muted anyway. As for the project, nice job. But where do the utensils go? Oh, sorry, maybe you told us, and I just wasn’t listening.

Have a nice day!

I vote for the chatty version….I didn’t know that when you faded out that it was meant to express time has passed. Had it not been for the chatty version I might have spent the next 10 years watching your videos not realizing that time had passed whenever the video did a fade out. Now I know.

How much coffee was consumed to make the ‘chatty’ version?

Wyatt is realy getting good! For those of us that could stop the chatty version just at the right time, you can view the items descriptions listed on your bench. The Dr. Dre hearing protection is the best. Great video Steve, keep em coming. Thank you.
