A friend/Co-worker asked if I would build a wood box to hold a nice$ bottle of wine she was giving to another friend/Co-worker for her wedding. A bit of research, I found this wedding wine box thing was trend catching on. The idea being you give the bride/groom a bottle of wine in a box that can be secured shut, not to be opened until an anniversary.
With a few wood options shown, she chose Walnut/Maple. From there, the design, construction, and finishing was up to me.
The box was finished with a coat of BLO, followed by four coats of blond shellac, rubbed out a bit with steel wool and paste wax, and finished with two coats of paste wax.
The lid is secured shut with a #4 Brass screw on each end.
Given this was my third box ever built and only second that I have taken time to finish, I am very happy with the results.
While I won’t point out my mistakes, feel free to spot anything and then we can have a dialogue about how to deal with it in the future.
