      First start by cutting your wood as shown in the cut list to the left.

    2. Step: 2

      Start assembling the frame of the beer tote by arranging the boards as shown and gluing and nailing together with 1" brad nails.

    3. Step: 3

      Finish out the frame by adding the other side, again using 1" brad nails.

    4. Step: 4

      Now is the best time to sand and stain your project.

    5. Step: 5

      Large 5b8cc731 5bf6 4d0b 9819 d814c62974a2

      Now add your 1/4" thick rails as shown using 1" brad nails.

    6. Step: 6

      Large 0fbf5ee7 069f 4e4c b767 27069ca62d55

      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.

  • Home Depot and Menards both sell bottle openers. I'm working on this with a few alterations right now and bought the bottle opener for mine @ Home Depot
