I am starting simple and just wanted to make a couple of simple cuts, stain and finish something. Now I am off to a friends with a 6 pack. Thanks for looking.

I like the rope handle. Are those cabinet pulls that it’s tied around?

Gianni – Those are pulls that have been sitting around gathering dust for about 7 years. I am glad to finally out them to use.

Maybe not as pretty as most of the projects on here, but definitely more useful!

Do you need my address so you can deliver the beer?

Great project. I am in the process of working on a few beer caddies right now.

Dave, there is nothing wrong with simple…especially if it is also useful. The knob and rope handles are a nice touch, and it works well. I may have made the rope just a tad longer to keep from skinning my knuckles on the caps and added dividers to keep the bottles from clanking. However, I believe in Occam’s Razor: “The simplest is best.” This certainly meets those criteria. Keep boxing and keep posting.
