This is my version of the wooden beer carrier that everyone seems to be making right now. This one holds 4 22oz bottles, (we call them bombers, but not sure why.) This one is made of ash, cherry, walnut, and a maple ply bottom. Everything is glued, dadoed, and a couple dowels in the handle. Seems to work ok, but when its filled, its pretty heavy.

Great way to spice it up with the use of exotics!

Very nice. A lot of work has been done by you. I hope you don’t forget to bring it home, after consuming the 4 bombers. I worry that I would leave it behind, and then I’d have to start all over again, unless there was an understanding that the host would bring it back to you when they returned – FULL.

Now that’s a good looking beer tote. Lots of style in that.

Thanks for the comments. This one is a gift, but also a prototype to figure out how I can make them efficiently enough to sell a few. I really don’t want to sacrifice the interesting parts of it, but this version is just not profitable.
