These things are kinda fun. Made about a dozen so far. These are made of Oak, Bloodwood, and one of Bubinga.

A great way to use up scraps.

That is a clever idea. You should get a 2nd Forstner bit of the size used and grind off the center point. After starting the hole with the one with the center point, switch to the one without the center point and – no hole in the bottom of your cap hole.

Bill, that is a great idea about the Forstner bits.

I love the look on peoples faces when i hand them one of these. :-) “What do I do with this?” Then hand them a bottle and watch their faces. hehehe….

Also, it’s kinda like a bandsaw box, in that it’s all just freehand on the bandsaw. No matter how it comes out (within reason) it’s all good.

Inspiration came from Brian’s really cool video here:
