For my daughters wedding I have made a box to contain a bottle of champagne and two champagne flutes.The box is chip carved with designs that have been heavily influenced by references from Wayne Barton books. During the ceremony the Grooms father will read a chapter from 1 Corinthians describing the concepts of Faith Hope and Love.

Happy days!

I am just blown away with the level of skill and craftsmanship you display with this astounding carving project.
