The leaves are just turning colors and I’ve already got a jump start on Christmas projects. I’m usually putting the last coat of finish on my projects late on Christmas Eve. LOL.

Since Christmas is coming soon, I figured these pine 6-pack carriers would be popular gifts. I finished these two up today and I’ve already got two orders!

I made them out of lumber yard 1x pine boards. I wanted to go for a rustic look, so I hit them with my propane soldering torch. Then I hit them with a brass bristle brush to get the charred wood off. I assembled the carriers with my finishing nail gun. After assembly, I wiped on a beeswax and boiled linseed oil polish.

The dividers are 1/4” craft plywood. For a finish, I wiped them with vinegar that I had soaked steel wool in. It reacts with the tannins in the wood. There isn’t much in the birch ply, so it gave a mellow color and helped the dividers blend in better.

AS some know; I really like the torched effect.

Nice work!

I also like the photo propping, the blue background really shows off the carriers.
