    Cherry Wine Box

    Since I really liked the box design Bob Gibson stole from me in the last box swap (you know I am kidding Bob) I decided to make another but in cherry this time, even found some cherry crotch in my stash for the lid. This is going to a old co-worker of my wife's as a wedding gift next Friday.....almost want to keep it myself

    Great box Tom, gotta love the curly top piece. What finish did you use?
    I'm supposed to respect my elders, but its getting harder and harder for me to find one now.

    Wow, great looking box Tom, like that curly top. Also curious about the finish.

    Cool, a cherry wine box. You could also use it for strawberry and watermelon wine too, right?
