A friend started brewing beer and wanted stackable beer boxes – Each holds 6 beers. I had a bunch of extra #2 2×6’s around so I built 9 of them out of those….not going to make the cover of “Fine Woodworking”, but it was nice to make a project that was simple and….held beer! Stole the design from a Rouge Brewery “Big Ass Box”....though it does seem sad to have so many empty beer boxes…..

Also in the picture is the firewood rack from hell….again, not fine woodworking, but a firewood rack doesn’t have to be a piece o shite either!

The link to Sketchup is under Schroeder and is (should be…), if anybody wants it….

Very nice beer boxes,. with the fingerjoints. As you say, utilitarian doesn’t have to mean junky or ugly. I keep saying I’m going to build something like that for my homebrew beer and cider, but somehow never got around to it yet. Plus I have such a mishmash of different bottle sizes and shapes.

The boxes alone are cool, but what really makes me go wow is the anti-gravitational feature they show in picture 4. Must be the beer.

Great looking boxes and with a definite purpose, but you forgot the important item. What type of beer does
he brew? Thank you for sharing.

Thanks all – it was a fun build, but by the time I was done I had the measurements memorized and am looking forward to when I don’t have every cut length on the brain…’s like a song stuck in my head right now…..but, hopefully, I’m going to be getting some nigh IPA from my friend and slowly kill those brain cells with beer!
