I had a lot of fun stressing over this. Each time I was hit with a unforced error I had to make the tote progressively smaller. I had to draw the line when any smaller it would not fit beer any longer.

Excellent work CF!! I love the tote. The wood choices, the perfect dovetails and the wedged dowels for the handle are all superb. Thanks so much for joining us this year!

Hardly anything beats a BEER tote. Nice job.

That RJ Rockers looks like a festive place.

It is a lot of fun. It’s about a mile from the house and has great live music often. They have been a customer of mine for 26 years now. They added a restaurant to the space and now have axe throwing in the basement. I have often wondered how a conversation goes with your liability insurance agent “I am adding a new taproom with axe throwing, am I covered?”

I couldn’t be any more please to be the recipient of your gift. It has receive universal acclaim from those who have seen it.

Lest anyone grow too concerned, I can assure you all there is no manlier beer tote. Cans are a little gauche for a tote this nice but it will happily fit 12 bottles.

Thanks Again CF

Now you’re talking, multipurpose beer tote. If you run out of beer you can toss some tools in there, not that anyone would spoil that beautiful tote.

Wow, those dovetails look flawless, and very striking with the colour contrast. Very sweet!
