The 6 Pack Caddy


Introduction: The 6 Pack Caddy

I have recently taken to trying to make gifts for other people in order to both save some money and make a more personalized item. This project i made for about $20 and 2 hours worth of work.

Step 1: Materials & Tools

Here are all the material I used for this small project:
1x6x6 Pine board
1/4"x6x6 Poplar board
3/4" Dowel
Danish Wood Oil

Miter Saw
3/4" Drill bit
120 sandpaper
220 sandpaper
Wood glue
Brad nailer
Table saw

Step 2: Wood Prep

I started out by sanding with 120 sandpaper and then finishing with 220. I used a normal sanding block and sanded with the grain.

I used Danish oil to stain all the wood in this project. I just dipped a paper towel into the stain and then rubbed that on the wood.

Step 3: Cut List

6"x1"x6' board
2-11 3/4"

3/4" dowel
1- 9.5"

1/4"x6"x2 board
Rip at 2 5/8"
1 cut 8"
2 cut 5.5

Step 4: Refinish As Needed

After making all my cuts I resanded the spot that needed it and added some more Danish oil.

Step 5: Assembly

For each part of the assembly I joined the wood together with wood glue and brad nails. I started assembly with the handle and bottom of the 6 pack. My next step was to add the sides.
To make the inserts I took my cut pieces and made slots in them. The slots are 1/4" wide and cut into each piece at least half way. On the 5 1/2" pieces I made the slots at the center of each of them. On the 8" piece I divided it into thirds and then added the slots. Afterwards I just slid the slots together and slid it into the 6-pack.

Step 6: Add Some Beer

Now it's time to go get a six pack (or maybe your second six pack)

    Great 'ible.

    Probably making one of these to use while on vacation.

    And good job stocking it with Heavy Seas.

    Very clear and easy to follow. I am already looking forward to making my second set.
