A new twist on an old favorite

I made this one out of Purple Heart, Brazilian Cherry and Beech. After posting the last one, I decided to make this as an example for one of my classes, as they will be making their own. The kids really liked it and I hope theirs come out just as nice. The colors work really well together. I have even decided to post it on ebay. I hope someone will buy it to give to someone as a gift. I think it would make a great wedding, birthday or valentines gift with a nice bottle of wine in it.

Nice work. I’m not sure what it is, though. Is it a wine bottle caddie?

Yes it is. It is a wine gift box. I posted one previously that I had made 2 years ago. I love how they come out

I think your wine caddie (gift box) is excellent. But… you need a 200 dollar bottle of wine to complement it.

Nice job. I made one of these a few years ago for a client at Christmas. I really like you you used end grain for the end pieces. That must have been one giant turning blank of PurpleHeart before you cut it. Great use of the grain pattern! Must have been fun to sand after cutting the curve on the end :)

A great looking project. Goo job and good luck on finding a buyer.

Derbs;

Very nice. I really like the corner joinery. I will have to give that a try on my next box project.

Nice work, and a good piece for the class. I really like the mix of the 3 woods.

Very nice, especially the end. Hope you get long long yankee green for it!
