This box is made out of Pennsylvania Cherry constructed with box joints. I finished it with one coat of 1# shellac and five coats of a tung oil finish. One of the issues I ran into was the width of the box using 1/2 boards and the amount of room between the sink and the wall would not allow a couple of the larger bottles to fit. I was afraid if I made the box wall any thinner the box may be too weak. To solve the problem I used a 3.5 inch forstner bit to cut a slight indentation in the boards; two with indentation on the front and rear wall and one in the middle on the front wall only. I also decided the face was too long and carved a V pattern into it.
