This was a departing gift for a USMC Major. I thought the title “one for the road” would be appropriate. The bottle was sent over for measurements. Only the weight changed! All kidding aside this was for a bottle of Johnny Walker Blue Label but I had to put something in place for the picture and a half gallon of milk would not make the grade.

The EGA and the MWSS crest were made from cherry, mahogany, maple, cocobolo, paduak, walnut, purple heart, bubinga and oak.

Great looking project! I’m sure the Major will love it—and the Captain Morgan!
