To pass the time, I have been building some furniture and some small woodworking projects.

I have also been designing and building Growler Boxes and Beer Caddies for craft beer. There have been several designs that I have been working on. I have given a few away to friends and they seem to really like them.

The beer caddies for bottled and canned beer have gone through a few design iterations. I experimented with different styles of sides, open sides and solid sides.

For finishing, I used a Minwax Walnut Stain and several coats of Minwax Polyurethane. I am very pleased with the results.
Another touch that I added was bottle openers from Lee Valley Tools. They add a rather nice feature to the beer caddy.
I made a couple for one of my work colleagues and as a result, several more have been requested. This past weekend, I did a limited production run.

We still have to get through the rest of February, March and April and I am hoping for an early riding season this year. Every once and awhile, I pull the covers off the bikes just to take a look!
I suspect that I will have a few more projects as I wait for Winter to pass. Looking forward to the 2018 MC season! Stay safe!
