For all those that bottle wine….

A 9 bottle carrier to bring with you, to carry all your bottles instead of that cardboard box…

Made of pine and created originally for my mom, who wanted something different to store and carry her empty bottles to the winemaker instead of the cardboard box the bottles came in…

Here you go guys, another project dealing with wine…you must think by now that i’m a wineo!!!!

But I’m a beer guy…but the demand is out there and alot of people like the wine!!!

Yeah I was beginning to wonder about you and all your wine related projects. They say it’s good for you though so really you’re more a health nut than an alcoholic! I think it’s probably good of you to focus on a neiche when you enter the business side of WW’ing. Good idea on the box; very “green”.

Nice, simple project. I could use a few of these.

Hi Rudge;

If you don’t have a drinking problem, how come some of those spots are empty? lol

Nice set up for a wineo picnic.

I think you should make a shorter one for your beer.

I love this. What did you use for the dividers? It looks like 1/4 in. plywood. It also looks like you made dado cuts in the box sides to accept the dividers? Are they held with glue only?

I have made smaller bottle carriers for gifts for people who like to take one or two bottles of wine to a party, but I never thought about making a larger one to transport bulk bottles. I have given most of them away, but I have one left that I will photograph and post.

I need one of these bigger carriers, we take wine back and forth between our main house in the SF Bay Area and our weekend house in Sonoma Country. It is usually in the mulitiple case load, but sometimes I need to pull some from my cellar and take it up for a weekend.

The smaller carriers I have made have a handle made from a wine barrel hoop that allows it to be carried in one hand. For a bigger carrier like yours, I am not sure if that would work. Perhaps a wood handle. Of course, I will probably make mine from wine barrel staves or used wood wine boxes, but I will definetly follow your idea.

Thanks for posting and sharing your ideas.
