I made these wooden 6 pack boxes for a friend as Christmas gifts, along with the 2 cherry bottle stoppers. I’ve never even touched a lathe until about 4 weeks ago, so I’ve been pretty pleased with my simple turnings. I had been making mostly balancing wine bottle stands as well as counter top wine racks, but figured I needed something to appeal to beer drinkers (like me), so I came up with the wooden 6 pack. They also work great for condiments at the BBQ!

These look great!

May I ask how the center piece is attached to the outer “box”?

Thanks Bob, it’s just a 1/4” dado slot in the inside of the ends. I wanted it to look just like a cardboard 6 pack.

If you guys make one, make up templates for your router work, you’ll probably end up making more than 1 in the future! Great gift for giving mixed 6 packs or for a homebrewer. I used Titebond 3 glue, and water based spar polycrylic finish due to moisture exposure. I also bored 6- 1/4” holes in the bottom for ample dainage. Have fun with it guys!

How thick is the material you used? Looks like about 3/8”.
