You could make them out of any type of wood but I'm using 1/2" walnut plywood for mine. If you do use plywood for your beer caddy you may find that cross cutting the plywood on the table saw or bandsaw leads to tear out. This can be prevented by placing some masking or painters tape on both sides of the plywood before cutting. This helps support the fibers as the blade plows through. All of the joinery in this build is simple butt joints reinforced with dowels. This will provide plenty of strength for beer carrying use. I prefer to finish my beer totes with spray lacquer as it dries quickly and add protection. More details and more projects like this on my woodworking website.

First thing you'll do is cut all your pieces to width and length.
