Kind of a busy day for me today at work but I am sneaking in this one post just to give everyone an update at what I’m currently up to.

I just finished last week my Christmas projects. It sounds really late, but we had my half of the family’s Christmas this last weekend so I was just on time. Now that I am past that, I can focus on the laundry list I have created for myself this year already. First in the line: January contest entry.

I’m doing a combo entry here. Since there are two contests this month and I’m short on time, I have decided to do one project and enter it into both contests (as far as I know this is within the rules, if not someone please tell me.) My project is to take a 2×4 and turn it into a box that will hold a wine bottle and two stem glasses. I’ve been drawing up designs and doing dimensions in my spare time and the last couple of nights I have put my skills to the test.

So far, I have cut the strips to create the side panels and glued up one side. The strips are 3/16 in and the panels are framed up using the same size strips around the edges. If I had some photos I’d post them up since I’m bad with explaining how it looks.

The next step is to finish building the side panels which I should have glued up by the end of the weekend and then move on to making the box and then on to the insides (surprise ending).

A box made from a 2×4 is good for both contests. Good luck.
