Made from scrap cedar. Hinges and rope were new.

Rope is actual manila; not plastic, I had to singe it.

Very light weight, yet strong enough and the loop handle makes carrying it easy and still can leave hands free!
Yjr stopper is turned from firewood salvage, unknown species.

Evolving design modifications already in planning stages.

I like the hands-free component of the rope, RJ. How does the top stay up? Can you show a picture from the back? Thanks for sharing.

#1 A BIG THANK YOU to everyone for all the positive comments!As an answer to “more details needed” I took some more pictures! PLEASE inform me about your IMPROVEMENTS!

This has been an evolving design and will probably change even more after your excellent ideas!

The gate leg size varies as the material I have available. These have been made with only the rope and hinge material new—all the rest i salvage. I turn the knob thing from firewood pile scraps.

These pictures were taken in the shop to show the back details. Ideas APPRECIATED too.

They can also be used for other beverages by modifying the main bottle hole to support different sizes like a 2 liter soft-drink bottle.

Ah, now I see. The piece with the second hinge is what holds the top up and the cleats on the bottom prevent the top from breaking along the grain. Maybe put the rope through the cleats, instead of the top? And somehow attaching the pin, to keep it from getting lost (unless it has another function that I am missing)? Thanks for the extra views, RJ.
