This wine bottle box is built from recycled wine barrel staves. The tricky part is getting the staves flat enough to make everything square. The top and bottom of the staves are fairly straight compared to the center. I had to keep the parts that were mostly flat and do some planing. I ran out of flat wood so I had to use some purple heart to make inserts for the ends. The lining is pig suede. Since the ends are basically butt joints, I added some brass pins to keep it from coming apart.
