Last week we made the napkin holder for those upcoming outdoor picnics. Continuing on with that theme this week we will make a Picnic Caddy. It's a handy caddy to carry all your picnic supplies to the table.
We start by cutting a 1/2" veneer plywood base 8 1/2" X 11".
Glue and nail all the pieces together.
To make the handle supports cut two pieces of wood 1 1/2" wide and 10" long.
Drill a 5/8" hole 3/4" down for the top of each piece.
You can round the ends to make them look a little nicer.
Center and attach the supports to each end of the caddy.
Cut a 5/8" dowel and put it through the handle supports. You can drill and pin it into place with a finish nail or cut the handle a little long, drill holes just beyond the handle supports and drive a small piece of wood dowel through to keep the handle from coming out.
That's it! Put some finish on it and go have a picnic.
