First start by cutting your wood as shown in the cut list to the left.
Start assembling the frame of the beer tote by arranging the boards as shown and gluing and nailing together with 1" brad nails.
Finish out the frame by adding the other side, again using 1" brad nails.
Now is the best time to sand and stain your project.
Now add your 1/4" thick rails as shown using 1" brad nails.
Finally add your handle and bottle opener and your done!
Note: My bottle opener came with 3/4" screws and since one of those gets screwed into only 1/2" thick material I had to purchase a 1/2" screw so it would not blow out the other side.
