mold maker 001 How To: Cast a solid ice beer caddy

Rob Cockerham–who has previously brought us spring shoes, a sweet Doc Ock costume, and How Much is Inside?, among other delights–wanted to serve a six-pack out of a solid block of ice. The block had to be cast with openings that would hold the bottles tightly but still let them slip loose when somebody wanted one. It took a bit of trial and error, but he eventually got the process figured out. The whole story is here. Rob hasn’t tried it yet, but he thinks, as I do, that one of these will probably float in a swimming pool fully loaded. Nice work, Rob! [via Boing Boing]
