Thie is a beer-tainer for my son-in-law. A wooden six-pack holder with four doors. The first had a bottle opener, the second a bag of pretzels, the third some nuts and finally, the forth had some napkins. The projects is made with a Kreg pocket jig, biskets, and some screws. All of the small hinges are mortised in and each place where a bottle sits is lined.

Very nice idea, you could design one for wine too. Your project is very creative and I bet it would be a big hit at a craft show, or silent auction/raffle. I like how you used all four sides as compartments. Overall it is unique.

I have got to give credit to Steve Ramsey at for starting my thinking on this project. He did a Kreg Keg Crate that was the original idea. I took that design as my starting point.

Where’s the ice? or better yet a flow through water system. :) Maybe he can fit one of those frozen ice packs in the underneath compartment? :)
