My wife couldn’t figure out what to get her brother for Christmas. Seemed easy enough to me. Crown royal and a box to store it in.

Box is made from curly oak and curly maple, and the insert is made from 2” foam board, and is not attached so that he can remove it and use the box any way he wants. Size is 10×10 by 5ish, and I used three kerf hinges for the lid because of the extra weight, shown in pic 5.

Lets see, two glasses, one bottle. The box must be for short term storage :)

Bill, beautiful wood. Great corner match. Do all four corners match or just three? I like the softened raised lid look on the top; it helps to show off the grain. With sides this thick you might consider piano hinges. Why no finger lift?

I like being reminded that Oak can have great character. Really nice work with this box. No Lock??

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and so little time!

That is a great looking box. Beautiful oak and maple and a great look with the grain carrying through each side.

I am getting sea sick looking at all the waves on the beautiful wood you used for this gift. It turned out awesome. The foam board idea is creative.

Thanks for sharing.

That wood is really something. One cannot go wrong with giving Crown, and the box it is in is superb. Much better than a purple bag. Good job.

I thought it would be funny to do a whiskey presentation box, always see them for wine, but hardly ever for whiskey.
