This project has been on the back burner for a long time. It's been in the back of my mind that I'd eventually get serious about homebrewing for about ten years now, so I've been saving all all my Grolsch bottles during this time.

I've rounded up all the ones from cardboard boxes in the attic, and the ones gracing the tops of my kitchen cabinets and counted 43 of these 16 oz (pint) bottles.

Two pine boxes custom sized to each fit 20 grolsch bottles. Twenty pints equal two and a half gallons, so both together will have a five gallon capacity.

I've got a couple of panels glued up so I can make the tops for the boxes. I hope to get these cut out, everything sanded, varnished, and hardware added over the next couple of weeks. I will add more pics as I go.
