these are three wine boxes i have made for my sister, they are made of red cedar, spalted oak, soft maple, walnut and dogwood…there are on the fronts are three diffrent cross stitch figures of red, purple and green grapes, my wife did those, i routed out the front of the door where those sit 1/4 inch insdie the door and trimed over with the dog wood…then three coats of poly applied to each, then i made some simple legs from red cedar , these were a lot of fun to make for her and now they will be mailed to her for a belated birthday gift

Super cool Grizz
These look really high end nice combination of woods, Very nice design and build super finish too ,Really neat great job. A fine gift, My complements to your wife for the beautiful cross stitch work. Maybe you could make some wine cases for the rustic set with a lot rougher wood and have a crescent moon on the door,this is not meant to understate these cool boxes at all.

Very nice Grizz,
I’m sure your sister will appreciate having something made by you! And she gets the benefit of your wife’s handiwork too.
Whatever will we do when the holidays are over and we don’t have an excuse to make projects!
Merry Christmas to you and your family.

Nice job Grizz, I like your choice of woods and the cross stich really sets it off. I am sure the gift will be treasured.

This is what Grizz can do when he’s laid up????

Beautifully done, Grizz! I agree that the combination of materials just looks super. That contrast between the crosstich and the great woods, elegantly finished, looks fantastic :-)

And those handles [now, I can’t be positive that’s what they are. Are they??] add a touch of “whacky creativity” that stands out, perfectly, against the symmetry of the boxes!
