I made a couple dozen wooden beer caddies for Christmas gifts – it took a little longer than expected to cut the inserts but the carriers turned out really well and I was able to fill and deliver them today. Just in time delivery 🙂
I used cedar fence boards for the sides and ordered the cast iron bottle openers from eBay. The rest was stock wood, 1.25″ ripped pine, 1″ dowel and 1/8″ plywood, all nailed together with finish nails.
