Another project idea stolen from the more inventive minds at LumberJocks. I’ve got a buddy that’s retiring next week. He likes his beer and buys it by the case so I thought a little beer caddy might be appropriate. Walnut with a cherry handle and splines. As you can see, I even took the time to test drive it for him.

Very nice design – I might have to borrow that handle design for my future ones. Clever!

Hey, You seem to have improved on the ones that are seen here!


You can fill mine with De Shutes “Black Butte Porter” and mail it!

You can use some oak and make him the “hill-billy ‘opener also!

Mule, very nice. I agree with Scott, love the land design, I’ve been trying to come up with an alternative for my Growler Carriers, this might be a winner. Well done.

There’s nothing like cold beer to celebrate retirement and what not. It’s a nice gift nicely done.
