With Christmas around the corner, I would like to make some growler totes for my husband and some of his friends.
This is my ‘prototype’. I used scraps so that I could modify as needed until I was happy with the dimensions.
The ends, handle and bottom are 1/2” birch plywood. The slats are leftover pieces of birch.
I’m happy with the dimensions now, but I think I’d rather have three wider slats on the sides instead of the the four thin ones. I’d also like the curve of the handle to match the cut out or vice versa.
I originally thought of box joints or something similar, but then went with simple instead, using my pin nailer and glue.
I also am on the fence as to whether I should use any type of finish or not.
For those of you who drink beer – would you be seen carrying this??
Your input would be appreciated.
-- No, I don't want to buy the pink hammer.
