I took my inspiration from the lovely coopering and colours of an oak wine barrel I bought in the Barossa. The box has an oak spine, top and bottom with sugar gum for the sides. It is really a document box big enough for A4 papers.
The colouration on the underside of the lid is from the red wine stored in the barrel. The oak staves are encrusted with a crystalline deposit and I can get quite intoxicated just from working with this. Combined with the smell of the oak it brings another pleasure from working with wood. Perhaps I should buy my wine by the barrel and make the most of the experience!
