When I get invited to dinner parties, I always ask “What can I bring?”
Because I have garnered some fame for craft cocktails (usually tiki-oriented), people always say “bring drinks!”. Sure! But that is more involved than one might think… 3-8 bottles of booze/mixers of various sorts, a healthy pile of citrus, squeezer, shaker, fine strainer, bitters, sometimes a can or two of soda water or ginger beer. Throw all that in a bag and it’s heavy, clanks around a lot, and can spill.
So I made a TIKI TOTE. (based roughly on a project that Nick did at one point). Can’t just make a bit 6-pack holder because booze bottles are widely varied in shape and size.
I still have a few additions-- notably, I have a bungie strap I want to run down either side to keep the bottles from bouncing around much.
Proudest bit is the handle, which has alternating rings of wood for a nice grip/texture:
