Don't serve wine from a box, serve wine from a bear.

A wine bear is a novel way to serve wine out of a box, in the box there is always a bag with the wine.

Step 1: Find out the measurements of the winebag you want to hide

The Type of winebag you can use can depend upon the region you are in.

I'm in mid Europe. And here most wine in a bag is in a 3l wine bag in a box.

On the internet I found the measurements of the original box
Measurements      Bag            Box                    palet
Length                  125 mm      125 mm             1,20 m
Depth                   125 mm      125 mm              0,80 m
Height                   235 mm      235 mm             1,19 m
Volume                 3,67 dm³     1,1424 m³
Wheigth                3900 gr       29680,00 gr      1360,60 kg

If you have another box you just have to calculate the measurements

5L = 5 dm3 = 250mm*200mm*100mm
In inches and gallons it should work the same.

Now you have the indication measurements for the volume
This space You will need in the bear, so now you can start looking for a bear.
This is great...Now I need to raid a toy box! <br> <br>I considered making something similar for my book club (by making a shell for the box of wine to look like a leather bound book) but I like this better because it also acts as a drinking buddy.
Keeping it out of children's reach might be tricky :-)
I'm going to make one of these! Thanks for the idea!
Great instructable! Interesting choice for the spigot placement. :)
I know too many people who need this.
I suddenly know that feeling.
