I copied the idea from http://lumberjocks.com/projects/170418, thank you phil7b7. I made three for our upcoming fundraiser for the EOD Warrior Fund. I ordered bottle openers and was going to install them on the end with a catcher but decided to go with a German flip top beer. I used a bunch of cutoffs from earlier projects, Elm, Cherry, Oak and Sapele; the only purchase was a broom handle I cut up for the handles. I did have to stager the bottles to fit the scraps width and added the swivel handle because the bottles are tall and I wanted it all to fit in a fridge for quick response to a relaxing day.

Great looking tote. I like the staggering of the beer, as it lets you see all of the bottles. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks, I was lucky they sell 18 to a case, I made four originally but one was a complete failure; tried pattern routing and it got eaten.
