A bit of background. I go to town almost daily, and usually get a cup of coffee to bring back home. Sometimes I also stop at the local KFC and get a mashed potato bowl, because I'm too lazy to fix something to eat at home. You can get the bowl for about $5, but they've got some loopy deal where you spend one cent more and you also get a chocolate cookie and a large drink. I'm not stupid, I spend the extra cent. Now that means two drinks, and a food bag to take into the house, and manage my cane. Well, that's no biggie, grab the bag, cradle the two drinks in the crook of my arm, the cane in the other hand, and proceed. However, and there is almost always a however, law of the universe or something.
The however in this case is, at times I stop at the grocery, or some other place, and that means I have more things to carry at one time. Too often doesn't turn out well for the drinks. I did buy a couple of cloth bags at the grocery that make carrying things to the house much easier. But that doesn't always mean the drinks make it too. And, no two trips is usually not in the agenda as my joints sometimes don't like a lot of walking, so one trip it is, and leave any extras for the next outing.
What I'm thinking is, make a holder for the two drinks (would still take just one), that will slip over one of the bag handles. No danger of crushing or dropping cups then. Or, maybe just make a double holder that I could just put inside the bag.
I've got no problem coming up with a design for this. It's not rocket science after all, just glue pieces of wood together. But, I don't want to reinvent the wheel. So, I'm wondering if there are any designs for such a device out there that might work out better than anything I've come up with so far. And, no I don't have a finished design for any of this, I figure when I start on it, I'll just wing it as I go along, and come up with something that will do what I want. That's what I call Zen woodworking.
