Let me guess, you pressed and bottled the wine too…. Great looking box!

Must be some great wine to deserve a box like that!

I just made a wine presentation box and now after looking at yours I feel bad.
Your box is creative and beautiful, nice projects. I would be hard pressed to give it away…

Very nice – have to make one of those for my daughter in law – may I ask where you got the pattern for the top?

Wow – that box is beautiful. I have 10 wine gift boxes to make. I’m going to try your design and hope for the best.
