This is another of my presentation wine boxes. This was a glue up of cherry and maple, then turned on my lathe. The cap acts as a lock to keep the box closed. The inside was hollowed out by hand because I don’t have any hollowing tools for the lathe at this time. There is ample room inside to wrap a wine bottle with bubble wrap for shipping purposes. I really enjoy trying to come up with different ideas for these wine boxes. They are my favorite to build.

One of the most unque boxes I have ever seen! Fantastic job. Great design. I like that the lid is the catch to hold it closed too.

Great design and build. Keep it up.

What was the order of events? Did you split it and then turn it?

It was turned first, then split.
