Almost finished Christmas presents. This project was featured in the December edition of Woodworkers Journal Magazine and designed by Sandor Nagyszalancsy. My version was made From Cherry with a figured Walnut panel in the lid. The photo are a little washed out but the cherry and walnut have a really deep/rich color. The walnut I found several years ago and had been stored in a barn for almost 50 years. Three coats of Danish Oil so far and then I will finish with a coat of wax on the outside surfaces. It was a fairly easy build and I really like the design. I will be making a few more (maybe next Christmas) I’m sure.

Thanks for looking.

Hi Dutchy. Great to hear from you. Thank you for the kind comments and holiday wishes. Merry Christmas to you and your family as well. I started a T&J tractor several months ago but it has taken a back seat to build a bedroom set for my Daughter and Wife, and now Christmas gifts. I have enjoyed following your projects and appreciate the blog on your Front End Loader build.

I really like the lift mechanism on the necks. Exceptionally nifty.

Those boxes are outstanding. I love it. It”s my latest “favorite”. I have a relative that is a wine “geek”. This will be the perfect gift. Thank you!

Exceptionally beautiful boxes, great idea on the lift mechanism.
I made you a buddy just to see what great project you would come up with next.

Thanks for sharing.

Beautiful job. I was searching for the plans for these boxes, as I know that I had seen them in one of the magazines that I subscribe to. Thank you for narrowing the search to the December issue of Woodworkers Journal. Now, I need to locate it, unless anyone has a .pdf set of planes that they can email to me.

Does anybody have a pdf set of plans for this box? I’m having trouble finding it and need to make one for my brother in law who is a wine maker. Thank you
