This is a wine box built out of a piece of cherry log. The handle is from a stick of maple found on the front lawn. Finished with 4 coats of Scandinavian tung oil. The inside is flocked.
Big hit with the drinking crowd!!!!!!

How neat. I like that. I’ll bet the drinkers all love it too. Great ingenuity went into that.

This is pretty dang cool! What a great way to present a gift bottle of wine…. wedding, anniversary, etc. Is the lid hinged or form fitted in some way? I really like this.

Spoon – The lid has a slice of the cut out from where the bottle sits glued to its underside to keep it in place. It is simply lifted off using the handle.
Thanks for the comments.
Had one lady buy one that was going to present it to her hubby but put a bottle of Jack Daniels in instead of wine.

Neat idea and presentation but what do you do with it when the bottle is empty (-;
I wonder if you could watch for an old vineyard being bull dozed and use the vine stumps in a similar manner. Oops I just noticed you are located in Maine. Guess there aren’t a lot of vineyards there. You may have to go to California for the vine stumps.

Wonderful! I’d try to make one myself, but my memory is so poor, after getting it finished I’d probably accidentally burn it in the fireplace while wondering why a log has a handle! I love things that are different.
