I figured if I am going to give someone a six pack of beer for Christmas, I might as well class it up a bit. The idea came from watching David Picciuto make his on the Youtube channel The Drunken Woodworker. These beer totes are made of pine boards rough milled from my fathers cottage on lake Kipawa in Quebec. The dividers are mahogany. As pine is known for the stain turned out really blotchy, even after using Minwax Pre-Stain conditioner. I went with the “rustic” theme to cover my tracks, the recipients didn’t seem to mind. I found the “church key” bottle openers at a local hand made craft show. The handle is wrapped with paracord and the bottom is lined with self adhesive cork shelf liner. All said and done i’m pretty happy with how they turned out. I learned a few valuable lessons on finishing techniques, so it was a good project.
Thanks for your interest
