I can never decide whether or not to feel guilty when blatantly copying another Lumberjock’s project. My wife got me a growler for Christmas and so I naturally had to build a tote for it (which would also give me the excuse to buy a second growler). I did some searching around and came across 7footer’s design.
I had some scrap wenge lying around and went to a local hardwood shop and picked up some awesome figured maple. This wood has figure that gives Kate Upton a run for the money! I made a few design changes to make the tote my own (dado bottom, through tenon) but there are some mistakes with the handle which makes 7footer’s work superior.
Anyway, I got to use it for the first time last night at a New Year’s party. It was a good conversation piece with the local Oregon hipsters.
