This is the final of three boxes that I have made a christmas gifts. The box is sized to hold two bottles of wine (outside dimensions are 14×9 x 6” high). It is made of maple, a walnut strip and a cherry top. The legs and handle are from bits of scrap walnut. The basic shape and style was inspired by Jeff Baenen’s (triumph1) wonderful Nine Lives Box. The lightly curved top is a bent lamination made from four 1/8 inch strips of book matched cherry backed with 1/8 inch mahogany (old baseboard) strips. The box was finished with a couple coats of walnut oil and beeswax.

Some lucky wine bottles. Looks great and the design is very elegant.
