A wedding Ceremony box, something I was not aware existed until I was asked to make this as a wedding gift.
During the ceremony, the bride and groom place two glasses, a bottle of wine, and two letters in the box. The top is secured any number of ways, and it opened at a predetermined time, 1, 5, 10 years.
This box is constructed from reclaimed oak estimated to be over 100 years old. A coat of General Finishes Shaker Maple and antique brown wax to highlight the grain. Inside the top are foam pads for the glasses and since the bottle will be stored upside down, a small block with foam to keep the bottle from tipping forward. The top is secured with a brass ball on each corner. The wedding invitation was printed by Steam Whistle Letterpress, Main St. OTR, Cincinnati,, OH and inlaid in the top, covered with no glare glass and captured with a thin oak frame. Size is approx. 12×15x6. Thanks for looking.
