First things first, credit to majeagle1, who’s design I heavily leaned on. http://lumberjocks.com/projects/48650
I made my brother a set of curly maple, padauk, and wenge bottle carriers last year as a commission birthday present from his wife. I really liked the design so I made another set of them for my groomsmen’s gifts. My brother is my best man, and since he already has them I wanted to do something different and special for his gift but wanted it to match the bottle carriers. We both really enjoy a game of bocce and I’d never seen any nice wooden bocce cases, so I decided to make one.
The only down side is that the balls moving around is a bit loud. This was my first box and I was worried about it being too small so I made it about 3/16 large in each direction and there’s a little too much room inside. I’ll be adding 1” felt circles where the balls touch the sides of the box which will hopefully quiet things up.
