I had been asked to make a small case for two bottles of wine as a Christmas gift. I had a little time on my hands this afternoon so I got stuck in with it.

I had some Maranti spare from another job so thought I would use that. I have had to glue up the lid as the last piece wasn't wide enough and this will slide into the top of the box. It will also have a message routed into it. It will have a central divider between the two bottles. Not sure if I should wax it or use a varnish?

I had a little time to day and I got nothing like this done, have your tools cooled down yet?

LOL, Yes Ron they have. It's a good job I use a spiral bit for the box joints as the two flute cutter isn't fast enough for me.

I must say that is very classical looking Mailee, excellent.
 
Maybe I should make some for when I give my wine away

Thanks guys. In between my other jobs I managed to get the lid made and a coat of sealer on it.


I have enjoyed making it as it has made a change. :D

Mailee, I have taken your advice and ordered a spiral cutter. I ordered it through the firm my daughter works for, with luck she will remember to place the order before Christmas, I hope she treats her customers better than this!

Ha ha, yes, if she is like my lad you will get it for easter. they are much better for cutting box joints like this as they give a cleaner cut in hardwood.

Hi Mailee

Dont take offence, but

I think Kieth is spelt Keith.

Hoping I've got it completely wrong so you dont have to make another one.

Yes guys this has been mentioned on another forum but this is exaclty as it was wrote down by the customer and I think it is for a French friend of his so I assume the spelling is correct. I didn't notice it until I had the top marked out but can't Reach him at the moment to ask. I am just crossing my fingers it is correct.
