Finished these this morning.
I got the idea from Wood magazine last year.
Figured I better get started on Christmas presents while I have a bit of spare time (I just got laid off from Aerospace last week).
Walnut, Soft Maple, Spalted maple with home-brewed Maloof oil.

I like ‘em a lot! Not sure what the packing material is, but I like to use nice curly shavings from hand planes when I do something like that. I let my newphews go at a piece of pine with a small block plane – they love it.

Nice work.

Thats a great gift idea. And if the reason for the gift doesn’t workout then you can sit back in the shop and unwind.

I make wine as well as sawdust. I have tried some very simple presentation boxes, and was disapointed with the results. Yours, however, look stunning!. I am now empowered to get back to making wine presentation boxes, use some urban lumber saved from the landfill/fireplace/bonfire pile.

I can see them now. claro walnut and citrus. Or black locust and cork oak. Or how about manzanita and Madrone?

Very Nice!!! I’m surprised that nobody mentioned how you matched up the walnut on the side through the sliding top. Definitely a nice touch.
They will make excellent gifts.

Sorry to hear about the jay-oh-bee. You could probably sell these boxes for big $ if you find the right hoytee toytee fru fru wine store.
Keep you chin up bro.
