« Part 1: beer tote project Part 2 of beer tote project series no next part

Here I rough cut the sides

I used a piece of oak dowel as the handle. A piece of mahogany for the bottom

I used a piece of lightly finished cedar and a piece of maple with a live edge for the center separator

I cut slots on the inside so the separator would fit in snug

Here is the original image I found for the side panel label

I converted it to a single color image and used a laser cutter to burn it into the wood.

Here things are ‘doweled’ together lightly before finishing it up

This project has already spawned another idea for a Christmas present!

Thanks for looking.

That’s a pretty fancy beer tote. Must be fancy beer, huh?
