I was asked recently by a member of the Kansas City Bier Meisters Home Brew Club if I would be willing to create something to donate to their club to be used as a fund-raiser in an upcoming event.

Since I make beer related items for a living as well as brew beer myself, I had no problems helping out a club that fosters our future brew-masters, brewers and recipe creators!

After a couple more emails, it was decided that I was to create both a mash paddle and a six-pack holder for them.

Here’s the results.

The paddle is one of my standard “homebrewer sized”, solid Ash paddles – customized with their name as well as some hop cone cut-outs to aid the stirring process.

The carrier is a mix of red oak and walnut and features twin hop cone carvings on each side.

Both of these were shipped out to Kansas City this week – hope they raise some much-needed funds!

That is a slick looking mash paddle. Are the hop cones cut on a cnc or scroll saw?

The hop cones on the paddle are cut using a scroll saw.

The cones on the six pack carrier were cut with my CNC Router.

Very nicely done! I do love both walnut and red oak!

The six-pack holder has too much time in it though!

You would love the Northwest!

Oregon and Washington states have the most breweries per capita in the country!

Home brew suppliers are also abundant!

If you can get it give the Widmer Brothers “B’RRR” a try— seasonal—soon to be unavailable for another year.
