How To: Carry Your Beer in Style with These DIY Wooden Six-Pack Holders

Carry Your Beer in Style with These DIY Wooden Six-Pack Holders

Nothing's better than a cold six-pack of your favorite beer—except maybe a cold six-pack of your favorite beer in a wooden caddy that you made yourself. With one of these, you can skip the paper ones they give you at the mix-and-match stations in grocery stores. Plus, it looks a lot better than cardboard.

Stylish, yet eco-friendly. Who says you can't have the best of both worlds?

Chris over on The New Hobbyist made these with a some pine board, plywood, and one dowel for each holder. His tutorial was inspired by a similar version by Redditor BitterLikeAHope (pictured below).

The construction is pretty easy. Just your basic cutting, sanding, staining, wood-gluing, and nailing. A bottle opener is the finishing touch, which you can find on Amazon for less than 5 bucks. And Chris even included a handy diagram on his site for what sizes the wood pieces should be.

Love the tote. I'm hoping after all this time of your post, that you'll still get a chance to reply. Your instructions don't give the measurements of where to make the cuts for the slats. It would be awesome of you'd share with me.
