This is one of my presentation wine boxes. The wine boxes are my favorite to build. This box is made of walnut and ash. The grapes are walnut plugs glued randomly to simulate the fruit. The ends are made up of several small pieces and the feet/top ends were turned on my lathe.

Another fantastic box. Great design and build. Fantastic choices of wood. Lots of unique details in this.

Great job. Keep it up.

Wonderful box.
I wish I could afford to drink wine of the quality that box would demand.
Glad you told us the secret of the grape clusters. I will have to remember that because I can’t carve worth a damn.

Beautiful and unique design. I especially liked the way you used the turned elements on the ends. I like your other boxes too.

Thanks for the compliments, I really appreciate your input. It is an oil finish rubbed down with fine steel wool in between coats. There is four coats on this project.
