This project wasn’t on the “to do” list but jumped in there when a friend wanted to build one. I thought WHY NOT build one for myself. First thing was to make it a bit well, unusual. I am in Europe at the time and 1 liter can or bottle is the normal size beer I buy. So that went into the dimension equation. Then to make it different. YEA,Different. A drawer for snacks might be necessary. Well folks, here is the results. OH YEA…. the lock on the drawer…... picture #3 …. It is held in place by the LEFT FRONT bottle. No spilling the snacks out of this beer hauler. I also added an opener of local design. I took a 2 Ruble coin and drilled it for the bottle cap opener I have made dozens of times. Did I mention a liter of Vodka fits in there too….....Did a bit of “flat” carving on the drawer too. OK, now I’m done.

Carry on….............

NEAT!
I am going to “Borrow” some of your ideas for my next ones! Maybe not the drawer though; snacks interfere
with serious beer drinking! I live in OR the state with the highest beer drinking average in the country!

I like the carving too.

This is a great and original twist on a traditional design. Really love the details that make it “yours”.

Good work,
Garry

Looks great Hunter. I like the snacks drawer idea and the locking feature, truly innovative. The carving detail also takes it to a higher level.
