Redneck Toothpick Carrier




Introduction: Redneck Toothpick Carrier

About: Jack-of-all trades, master of some. I would probably be much more modest if it wasn't for these delusions of granduer that I suffer from.


This here handy dandy thing-a-ma-jig is what is know as an O-fish-al Redneck Toothpick Carrier complete with De-lux Waterproofin'

it's easier than possum pie to make.  Y'all just save you a few spent shells after  youse done-did finished runnin' off them-thar varmints from yo properties.


This is an Official Redneck Toothpick (teethpick for non rednecks) Carrier with optional waterproofing.

All you need is a few empty shotgun shells.

Step 1: Hows-A-Do


Give one of em a good stretchin' around the open end and then you squoze in the other one till it is good and snug.  Don't worry none ifin the inside shell get a bit wrinkly, it's right as ring dings.

Pull your shells apart just like ya do when your dogs get all riled up .. jess grab the back end of each one and yank till they pop apart.

Drop in yo toothpicks and squoze the shells together ag'in.


Using your finger apply an outward pressure to flair the top of the shell making it easier to slide the second shell inside the first.  press fit the two shells together.  The inside shell will get a crease in it, don't panic that is normal. 

Grab the brass end of each shell and pull them apart.

Fill the inside shell with toothpicks, and slide the outside shell onto the inside shell.

Step 2: Jes' About Dun


Grab  you a roll of "fix-all" and rip off a piece about as long as a sammich.

Wrap your carrier up in duct tape like a trout in tin foil.  Jes' don't throw it on the grill or you'll make a bigger mess than a three year old on spaghetti night.

Now your carrier is as watertight as a bullfrog's butt.


cut off a piece of duct tape about 4 inches long.

Wrap the duct tape around the shells to seal your container and keep water out.

    Why would a redneck carry toothpicks? I thought he would be cutting them right away from an instant cut sequoia tree!
    Just kidding mate, nice idea, like it!!!

    if you do thiss with a new shell you can cut the top of and use the wading as a lid it looks a bit cooler than the tape
