These are from the plan on wwgoa.com Fun, easy, do what ever you want kind of little project. I had some scrap ambrosia maple and cut some thin purple heart strips, went to town with the scroll saw one bend at a time and well, there ya have it. I made 4, gave 2 away before I remembered to photo them. The one with the Corona was one that was given away – this was the first night they had it. They love it, think it is so fun, and I think it is getting it’s fair share of use! :) Rare earth magnet to hold the bottle cap. If I make more I’d add either a leather loop on the end or another rare earth magnet on the back of the head to hold it to the fridge. Finished with many coats of semi-gloss poly spray and a couple coats of wax.

It’s 5 o’clock somewhere!

Oh Yes!

Very pretty and will last through a bunch of uses.

In OR I think they outlawed that “light” stuff! Way too many fine brews around here!

I may be pretty dumb, but you didn’t mention what these are or what they do.

Steve – maybe I could incorporate an eye bolt instead of a leather loop as a holder for them next time!

I suppose here in redneck country a Corona Light w/ a slice of lime is a fine craft brew! lol!
