We have some really great Micro Brews around here and our kids do enjoy them. I’ve been meaning to build one of these for years. I’ve been watching the parade of Beer Totes pass through the listings and none of them really hit on what I was thinking, so here’s my version of a Beer Tote that will hold two one litter bottles, half Growlers or two bottles of wine.

Made from cherry and tiger maple. Hand-cut dovetail’s and through tenons. Making a four pack version for 22 oz or Bombers plus a 12 oz six pack.

Thanks for the comments!
My thought’s on making a tote (especially for bigger bottles) was to make them lite and airy. This design just kind of evolved as I has making it, assemble, look at it and than nibble away some assemble again and repeat.

Like you I have been looking at the totes and thinking about making a couple for my kids. Your design is the best I have seen. I really like the way you showcase the joints. You have given me some ideas to work from.
