How to Make a DIY Drink Tote / Beer Tote / 6 Pack Holder

60 Views · Published on Wed, 12 June 2019 · Woodworking Projects

This week I take some time to make drink tote or beer tote for carrying a 6 pack of bottled drinks, the perfect summer time addition to your picnic and BBQ outings. Making a DIY drink tote or drink carrier is a pretty easy woodworking project, but there are some things to watch out for in the design. First of all you want to make sure that the handle will clear the highest bottle and still leave room for a hand to clear the bottles, otherwise they can get scraped on the edges of the metal bottle caps. You will also want to make sure when you are measuring for sizes that the inside will have enough room for the bottles. In smaller projects like this it is easy to measure the bottles then omit the thickness of the wood an make the carrier a wee bit too small. One other consideration is, if you will be installing a wall mount bottle opener, it's best to keep it up a high on the tote as you can, otherwise it makes it awkward to open bottles if the opener is too low on the gable end. All that said, this little drink carrier is a perfect like weekend project for many woodworkers. I could even be used as a small, inexpensive wooden feature for anyone who sells their woodcraft at garden markets, flea markets or swap meets. They are easy to put together and are real eye catchers, a perfect gift for anyone because there is such a variety of drinks you could put in them. Have fun making this, it's a great, easy to make project for experienced and novice woodworkers alike and perfect for any man cave.

One of the joys of woodworking is making things for other people, that you know is going to delight them and get well used. Such is the case with this doll's cradle for a lucky young girl, who will receive it along with a doll and a matching hand made quilt. I'm sure it will bring years of use and play-time.
