Here are 3 different Ambrosia Maple and Bubinga wine boxes I created as gifts for this past Christmas. The wife loves color so she got the orange stained one and our son and daughter each got my favorite look of all natural. The sides, top and bottom are Ambrosia Maple, the ends are Bubinga and the handle is a combination of both. The dowel pins are 1/4” walnut. All three were sanded to 220 grit and finished with 3 coats of Watco Danish Oil.
To be honest, only one of them ever contained a bottle of wine and that was to our daughter. All three are now being used as personal “memory” storage boxes.
Man, do I love Ambrosia Maple! Its so easy to work with, has the look of being highly figured without the headaches and looks stunning with an oil finish.
