Built this for a charity raffle at work. Mortise and tenons, opposing wedges and through tenons—no metal fasteners. It’s the most over-built six-pack holder ever.

Nothing is ever too good to protect a six pack!

Nice design.

Great looking six pack tote—I definitely like the Japanese timber frame look of it!

I love the Japanese design to this project. Would love to make a six pack case from wood and really think your design is the most unique of any I have seen.

Love it! Makes me thirsty. Do you have any plans you’d like to share?

Hey Skully…no plans unfortunately. The main verticals got tenons and then there’s a mortise on the top bar (pegged). The bottom is in a groove on the base pieces like a breadboard end. Everything else is basically through-mortised.

Great twist on this item. I imagine in a beer tote contest, this would be a standout winner. Did you use a spokeshave for that top beam?

If it’s worth doing, then it’s worth overdoing. Well done.

I did use a spokeshave. Cut the rough shape on the bandsaw and then rounded everything out with an old 1890s Stanley shave that I got on eBay. It tuned up beautifully and holds a great edge.

Have your say...
