Project Information

Over the past couple of months I have been "harvesting" some really nice pieces from large pallets. These all came from South America and were used a single time to ship very heavy stacks of steel to a business close to my home. I now have close to a hundred pieces including teak, poplar, cherry, cedar, oak and what I call "Mystery Wood".

Last week I decided to start using some of the wood and to challenge myself to make something really "classy" with it - this is the result. What's more classy than a six pack holder!

Every piece in this carrier was previously a pallet slat.

I know most of the wood is white oak, and the strips down the middle of the sides are cherry, but I'm not sure of the exact species of cherry.

The bottom is held in place with a dado and the rest use mortise and tenon joinery. Not a single nail or screw was used for joinery in the entire carrier.

I also attached a bottle opener I picked up when touring the Dogfish Head Brewery a couple of weeks ago in Milton, Delaware. It completes the project rather nicely. :)

In case you were wondering, the beer is my own homebrew - in this case a Hefeweizen that is REALLY tasty!

Cheers!

Great project, as a home brewer myself, I can see the need for this as I'm always taking a few bottles when I go visiting.

I did notice +++ ONE IS MISSING!

Really neat idea. I am also capable of scrounging good wood. Where I used to work we even had some rough black walnut come in as truck dunage. About 3 of us split that among us.

Great Idea, Great JOB!
