My sister is getting married in a couple months and asked me to make her a wine box. So I made this one out of quartersawn white oak and walnut that was sawed up in our grandpas sawmill. This was my first time trying to put spline joints in the corners andI think they turned out pretty well. I also thought that brand of wine was a nice touch.

Beautiful box and how wonderfully nice to use wood from grandpa’s sawmill. Well done! Do you plan to have it engraved?

I was looking for somebody local to put it on a CNC and somehow engrave it but I haven’t had much luck yet.

Nice work mramsey!

I just did something very similar for my sister’s wedding, also my first time with spline joints. Looks like you got nice tight miters, which I found to be the hardest part.

I like the modern look, and with the QS oak it should hold up for a good long time! It looks like you put an engineer’s attention to detail into it.

You’ve outdone yourself today! This is a lovely box!
