Hello every one. I have not posted projects for a while as have been very busy making them. A fellow who gives wine, champagne and liquor for gifts ask me to make eight whiskey gift boxes as shown in the thumbnail pic. After giving them for Christmas gifts he ask for fifteen more to last for next year. Just finished them and will show some in the next pic. He wanted them made from several different wood species which I did. The handles are made from other species and steam bent from usually three layers. This was a very time consuming project but came out with very good results. One more pic with some of the bottles shown in the boxes. Could not get them all into one pic. Thanks for looking and comments always welcome. PM with size questions and tricks.

They have an understated simple elegance. I’ll have to keep this as an idea for next year’s Christmas gifts.

Three quick questions. Are the corner joints just mitered? What kind of hardware is used to attach the handle? How is the bottom attached? Love the boxes. Nice job!

Cool job on those boxes Vernon. I see you have the steam bending down to a science. One question, why is this guy giving you wine? LOL. Does he need more friends?

Very nice! Really like the handles. I’m with the other guys, what kind of hardware is attaching them? I’m going to steal, I mean file this idea away for later use.

Thanks for sharing!

Those are really great – and could be used for other things after the whiskey is gone. Thanks for sharing.
