Hello Fellow Lumberjocks,
This is a little Greene and Greene box inspired by Darrell Peart. I built this for a bottle of Champange to give to my youngest cousin at her wedding. The wood is Cherry and Maple, plugs are Fast-Caps.

Very beautiful. I like it. But not enough information. Is the maple decorative or functional? What does it look like on the inside? Is it one box or two? More, More, More.

How well do Fast-Caps work? I would be concerned about a major/signature feature of a piece like a G&G using a peel-off sticker. Do they push into a countersink or are they sitting on top of screws?

Sergio, The fast caps sit in a shallow mortise, and are attached with glue. I thought they looked fine. That being said… if I were to do it all over again I would have made them out of wood. :)

Mat the box looks fantastic, my only comment is that the locking jointery are too square and need more of the round over feel of the G&G style. Just my opinion, nice build thanks for posting BC

Interesting project, G&G is new to me, this piece makes you stop and look a while, it appears that it will Never come apart, and will hold lots of bottles as the years go by, she will love it, thanks for sharing
-- It's Mic Keep working and sharing

In my opinion all arts and crafts stuff is just the best woodworking we have had for a long time. There are some new pieces and new artists doing good work too.Keep showing us this type of work please . Alistair
