I saw a couple of these posted here and thought it’d be a perfect gift for a friend who’s a home brewer. He often brings a six pack of his beer to other people’s houses, and so it seemed like a useful gift.

I used scrap material I had on hand: douglas fir and white pine for the sides and bottom, an oak dowel for the handle, and 1/4” cherry plywood for the dividers. I also made two because I knew I’d want to keep one for myself. I probably paid too much for the bottle opener, but that was the only one that didn’t have a Coca-cola logo on it.

Thanks guys! Bondo, the openers were bought at my local Ace hardware store and were $7.99 a piece. You can probably get them online or somewhere else cheaper, but I wanted to get it done on Friday because that was when my friend was having a party.

Could one of the panels be removable for the bourbon?

I dig it Brandon, another project well done. Id gladly drink to that.

Thanks for looking, all. Stef, you know I’ll have to figure something something out for the bourbon—- maybe a box with glasses or something. The problem is that bourbon bottles come in so many different shapes and sizes.
