So for Christmas gifts for my young male cousins I felt that a “beverage” six pack holder would be a good idea. I created a box in easel using 1/4" cherry boards.on each side I put something personal from family flag, college, initials proteam, etc. I then created a handle out of 3/4" oak in autocad imported that into easel for the final product. If I had done this on a 1000^2mm xcarve it would have been a fairly simple project but since each piece had to be cut out one at a time on my 500^2mm xcarve it was a little time consuming. I have also figured out that a planer/jointer needs to be my next addition to the shop. The base box is 10" long by 6" wide by 4" high
Box Stacked on top of each other
So alot of people who have seen these have asked me to make them one but I am done its a good amount of work and I don’t have the time/desire to do that. Would be a decent idea for the people who sell stuff on etsy and have an xcarve.
Ive got one SVG file for the handle since I had to design that in autocad. The rest is all easel, used the box making app then added holes for the handle and circles for the bottles. I’ll start working on easel project write up in the next few days.
Reaction went over great one of my aunts(mother of one of cousins that got one cried). The reactions definitely made all the time and cash(cherry wood is way to much $$$) worth it. I’ll work on a project to publish in next few days.
Ed, those things are really cool! One idea I had when I first saw them was did you ever try to think of a way so you could fill them with ice? Maybe a hinge on one side? I’m not a beer drinker but I’d imagine those bottles sitting in ice would be kind of a “cool” upgrade.
