Planning: 1 Hrs
Cutting: 30 Minutes
Assembly: 1 Hrs

Cost: $5 (only the Bottle Opener was purchased)

All of the materials came from scrap pieces of wood from my Milled Lumber project.

I purchased the cast iron bottle opener from Amazon:

I used an old beer box to get the dimensions, as I was using scrap pieces, it wasn't going to be a ornate piece.  Utilitarian, rough cut, and showed off the beer.

I cut 2" strips to keep the bottles in place, and spaced them high enough to show off the labels.


The sides were 12" long, giving enough space to allow for a recessed handle


The handle itself was a 2"x2" board that i ripped the corners off (very carefully!) and sanded down to make it a little round-ish.


Some shots with the finish nailer, and a screw through the handle at the top for the bottle opener, and viola! 




Just remember to pick up your bottle caps!
