More growler totes, they are all made out of poplar and joined with oak dowels, no screws or nails, and finished with satin spray lacquer. Some of these pieces of poplar have some really neat looking grain, and i did the best I could to try and bookmatch them together, even though I had a bunch of random pieces of stock.

the first 3 pics are the newest ones, with drain holes in the bottom and magnets on the end to hold the bottlecaps.

Pic 1: v. 2.1 made for a co-worker (slightly different handles are just experimental)
Pic 2: view from the top
Pic 3: draining – I misplaced my 2nd growler.
Pic 4: two samples I made for local businesses.
Pic 5: Another view of v. 2.0
Pic 6: The 3 different designs and the shavings from easing the edges.

The Lineup (the 4 on the right are finished and the 2 on the left are not):

The usual suspects:

Cool grain:

The 608 and the Infill are keeping an eye on things:

Suggestions welcome! Thanks for looking!

I suggest you fill one tote with delicious beer and send it to your boy on the east coast. Looking very marketable brosif.

Thank you thank you!

Chad the holes are in the bottom are for when you finish the growler you can rinse it out and turn it upside down and let it drain/dry out so you don’t keep moisture trapped in there.

Looking good 7. The magnetic holder for the cap while draining is a real slick idea.

Great job 7! I do a lot of woodcraft work for a couple of local breweries and have been thinking about a growler tote for a while now. I like your design and would like to incorporate a few of your ideas. It looks pretty time consuming for sure! I like the way you covered the bases for draining and cap storage…. great thinking!

I know a few pubs that would buy these. They are those old fashioned pubs with the wagon wheel outside. I am sure they would sell as well once branded. Thanks!
