Winter 2018

I really love where I live, but I do find the Winters rather long.  Last year, I built a new garage/shop and this winter, I have really been able to take advantage of it.


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.

Closed Side Beer Caddy

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.




Third Growler Box Design

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!

  2. Staying up to date with the latest international news is a top priority for most people. The vast majority turns on the television to get an instant dose of what's going on around the world. However, with such little time on our hands the frequent and long running advertisements on the television can be quite irritating and time consuming. Luckily, we now have the alternative in the form of news blogs that deliver the latest updates on current global news and that too without the constant advertisements! world's largest bean
