I had some walnut laying around and thought it would make a cool beer caddy. I tried to integrate the handle into the sides like I saw another lumberjock do (sorry…forget who that was). The angles were a bit off so I had to use the sawdust/hide glue solution to fill the gaps. I don’t think it turned out too bad for a first attempt. Thanks for looking!

Looks like she came out pretty well—especially for a first attempt! I’ll be you’ll get a lot of good use out of it!

Looks great. It holds the beer bottles nicely. That’s all that really matters!

Dave, this is a nice design and is a very functional project. Looks like you made strides in building this. The walnut in your tote is a nice choice. Just for the sake of comparison, you might check out one that I made last year. Keep boxing and keep posting.

Hey Big Al,

I like your version as well. Looks like you came up with a smarter way to build the handle so that it integrates with the sides. Thanks for the feedback!

This is a delightful beer caddy. I like the design and the tote will make a great gift.
