This cute beer caddy will be perfect for any time but especially for Christmas – you leave messages to your friends on them! Prepare 1 3/4 dowel rod, 1 3 ft long 1×8, 2 small pieces of plywood or craft wood, each 4″x10″, 1 4″x8″ piece of thin plywood, wood stain and chalkboard paint. First, cut your 1×8 into the following lengths: 2 12″ pieces, 1 8″ piece. Next angle cut the ends of your caddy (the 12″ pieces). The easiest way to achieve this is to measure down on each board about 6 inches. Then, measure over 2 1/2 inches from the top corners. Draw lines connecting the two marks. Cut with either a miter, jig or circular saw. Keep reading what to do in the source.
