My Fiance asked if I would build a wine box. The purpose of this box is that it will hold this bottle of wine and notes that we will write each other. It has two locks on it, she has the key to one and I have the key to the other. Once we have our first married-couple impasse of whatever sort, we will open the box, share the bottle of wine, and read the notes. Hopefully the wine is corked by the time that day comes!
This is a pretty straight-foward box but I got to try some new things for me in the process, including hand-planing the top and bottom. Box joints were made with a Wandel jig. It is African mahogany finished in danish oil.
