This is the finished design.

For fathers day, i created this 4-pack for some craft beers, after being inspired by something the store sold.  After scrounging around in my garage, i came across a piece of reclaimed cherry that had beautiful wear on it. After constructing it, i had a lightbuld and went into my room.  I found an old belt, cut a piece, and then rounded the corners, making a perfect leather strap.  It was a quick afternoon project, and my father loved the final piece.


My name's Matthew, and I'm a 15 year old interested in woodworking.  I didn't get into shop at school, so I took advantage of my dads' shop in the basement.  I sure hope you enjoy my projects!
