This is not only my first project post on LJ, but also what I consider to be my first real wood project outside of jigs and shop furniture. I learned a lot or, in other words, I made a ton of mistakes along the way.

I made four of these as Christmas gifts for the craft beer fans in my life. 2 pine, 2 red oak. No fasteners except of course for the bottle openers. The dividers are not attached, however the center piece is snugged into a dado in the base. The rest of the joinery should be apparent from the pictures. The curves were made on the router table with a self-made template. Finished with just Danish oil and paste wax. I expect them to build up some character with use.

Jeff that is the best project I have ever seen! This is going to be the first project that I attempt and will probably have to take several passes at. But I LOVE it.

These are great! I love this style of tote, and plan on making a few myself. Did you find/use plans for this? or just do it all trial/error? IF so would you mind sharing the plans or directing to the plans you used?

Have your say...
