I found this in Back issue #174 of Wood Magazine. Made from Pine and ???. Mystery wood was salvaged from a Pallet I found years ago. It’s reddish brown, very dense and heavy and hard. Not sure what it is but very pretty, dark reddish brown grain. I finish it with a 30/30/30 mix of Mineral Spirits, BLO, and Poly. Turned out pretty well. Think I’ll take it to a Liqour Store and see if they want to stick a bottle of wine in it and sell it as a package deal on consignment. Gunna ask $50 bucks for it. My cost was $0 and time was 3 hours. I used 1/4” dowels epoxied with 5 min epoxy in the end piece. Drilled the End piece first on the Drill Press, Clamped it in placed used it for drill guide to Free Hand drill into box sides. I then Glued the ends into place and then using my 6” table belt sander rounded off the ends. Really quite easy to build and minimal time and effort.

If it sells, I’ll make more.

Man that came out great. I think they would sell for sure.

Suggestion. I do a lot with waterslide decals for my pedalboards and I think adding some personalization, sayings, verses, etc. on the sides would take this thing to the next level. You’d probably sell a bunch on ebay or esty.

Nice work man!

Well done. I made a few of these for a friends Vineyard here in Southern California… I had them engraved with a laser at a tropy shop.
