Super easy project that may give the jocks an idea a gift if you have a buddy who loves the hard stuff. Finished with shellac. Happy woodworking fellas.

Good idea, but my friends are “handle” guys. Might need to work out to lift a 6 pack of 1.75 liter bottles!

I think it is a real gag gift – all the liqueur bottles are small (compare with shellac can).
a) I like the wood selection
b) I would make handle higher, just a bit
c) real bottle should go with this gag gift – it will be more appreciated ;)

It’s a gag gift. My buddy thought it was funny. It’s kind of a joke on all those beer caddies.

Sorry that was supposed to be for Peter. I quoted the wrong post.

It’s a great gag and gift for anyone who’s a drinker. Nice job. I made a Mini Bar using those small bottles years ago and it’s a great party starter.

My first thought—WTF, who buys lil bottles of bourbon?!?
On review, I think hell yeah!
Gotta do this for a friend who I introduced to single barrel Bourbons.
Thanks.

I like it. A caddy made for the miniatures. What a great idea. Not really a “gag” gift but a gift for someone with a lot of thought. Nicely done!
