Four pack beer caddies made as presents. I found some piece of board in grandfather’s barn. My friend told me that this is maple – here called ’’bird’’ maple. Cross slats -beech, bottom playwood.

Photo transfer on wood technic signs :

Žuja je zakon! – Žuja is a law! (Žuja is a nick name of the local beer – advertising campaign)

Da bi došao do druge, najprije otvori prvu – To get to the other, first open the first one (words of wisdom, as a part of advertising campaign for another local beer)

Don’t ask my why four packs. Original plan was six packs.
I have jig for fingerjoints on tablsaw, but I made it for 3.2mm blade. I forgot that and made cuts with 2.8mm blade – ofcourse they weren’t fit. So, I had to cut ends and save the day with overlaping joints strenghten with dowels.

Looks more like Quilted maple than Birdseye maple to me. Still beautiful though. Nice work!
