Walnut beer tote when the standard cardboard one just won’t due.

The tote is finished with 3 coats of shellac. The tote has dovetails for the corners and through mortis and tendons for the center handle. The bottle spacers are little ¼” hidden mortis and tendon joints.

Great day to finish the beer tote because today its 94 F and with the heat index its 105 F.

Very nice!

I like the dovetails – good work.

And, I think I detect Dogfish Head 60 Min IPA – great choice!

Dogfish Head 60 min IPA is the house IPA and I’m glad to see you noticed that fine detail. The 90 min IPA is also a house favorite too.

One of the most useful items one can ever build. And you did a great job on yours.
