What is it? Nice thing about owning a shop is to make things you can’t find elsewhere. This would also make a nice wine carrier. BTW, it is really apple red, not brown-red.

They might be for the relief valve?

Nice caddy. I thought the hemostats are there to hold your joint so your fingers won’t get burned while you are refilling the bottles.

Yeah, there’s a small relief valve that can be easily opened with the hemostat clip. Needle nose plyers also work. You can also relieve pressure by pressing on the pin in the top. The scale is to measure the empty and filled weights so you don’t overfill. Lots of videos online. I have two types of refill connections shown; the fancy one coming out of the large tank and a small one stored in the caddy.

Nice work, however I have to fuss a bit about refilling 1lb propane cylinders. For starters, it’s illegal, and dangerous…

You can also get refillable containers like the light green one in the picture.

Thats a great caddy. Well designed and constructed. I like the way you finished it too, very nice. I don’t know anything about propane refilling, but it must be dangerous. Woodworking can be dangerous too, I do my best to stay safe and yet ‘accidents happen’, you just hope they’re small ones. Not sure about an accident with propane but I can imagine. Stay Safe

Gonna argue with you, it is fine woodworking when the item you make PERFECTLY does the job you make it to do, at least it’s functionally fine. I think most confuse the fine with pretty.

Looks like you have done this, and someone here gave you a 3. They don’t do that for schlocky throw together’s, you used fine joinery, and made something pleasing to the eye, and Boy doesn’t it serve a purpose. that alone gives you a passing grade on using tools.

Nice post, Congrats on the 3.
