My brother-in-law is a great home brewer, and has won a number of awards in Michigan for brewing. Every year he brings his suds over for my Superbowl party, and we also get together for our own tradition of watching the NCAA finals together.

After seeing someone else post a beer tote, I thought I’d make a couple for him.

The smaller one is made of primarily cherry with walnut for the dividers, and a poplar bottom. The dividers are M&T into the sides.

The larger one is also cherry. The dowels are 1/2” oak, and the dividers are walnut, with a poplar bottom.

I got the bottle opener on amazon for about 4 bucks each.

Very nice work on both of these!

I love the handle on smaller version and the openness of the larger one.

Thanks for sharing these.

Beautiful joinery and like every one said, gotta love those handles. What kind of finish did you put on them?

It’s a very nice tote and very practical as well.

I have to make me one of these. They make a great gift for the host/hostess.
