The other day I posted some wine bottle holders from scrap wood. Someone commented if I had one that held a box and a light came on in my head as always so today I designed the grapes on a vine and spend 3 hours on the scroll saw cutting out the grapes and vine then I spent the rest of the day putting the box together being I did not have wide enough wood I had to make my own. Its was 11 pm my time when I finished the darn thing lots of glue time. But here it is a first for me. It holds my box of wine LOL. I did forget to cutting the hole in the top to carry it was tired I guess Brain turned off and just kept working. Its made with Maple and Walnut.
Thanks again for everyones support Dennis

That is very cool, a great idea. Once in a while Blondie buys a box of wine, this would dress it up nicely. Great post.

Good job. That scroll work looks tedious and very well done.

You are one talented guy. Wonderful idea, and the scrolling stands out nicely.

Great idea Dennis, and excellent execution as well.
This is the second time I’ve seen this concept explored.
The other was my marquetry friend Elaine’s.
Different approaches but both much better than looking at the cardboard box.

Nice work Dennis, Thanks.

sure makes the box of wine, with its unfortunate, (and not deserved,) negative reputation look perfectly palatable!

Really Great Dennis. I am a box wine drinker myself and have thought about building a box like you did…now I have to make it. Where did you find the pattern for the scroll saw work?

You might want to use redwood, then you can keep it in the fridge and not worry about the humidity. This would get a great laugh here in the wine country.

Love it! I am planning to build one for my father in-law first thing this spring. Mine will be elevated with a drip catcher. I love the Grape design! Did you draw it yourelf, or is it available online? I would like to try it on mine when i build it.
