6 Packer Laser Cut Beer Carrier

6 Packer

The 6 Packer is a six-pack carrier made from laser cut plywood that’s perfect for carrying around six of your favorite homebrews.

It’s also open source, with plans available for download through Thingverse, allowing you to customize the material thickness, bottle diameter, fastener size, hand grips, and more.

Once you’ve finalized the design to your preferences, you can send the plans to a laser cutter and have pieces ready for assembly in just a few minutes.

If you don’t have a personal laser cutter, you an also purchase the 6 Packer on Etsy, though that does take away some of the DIY charm.
