I threw this together fairly hastily for a co-worker who helped me with some work. I re-sawed a cedar fence plank and fabricated up a military style crate. He is a fan of scotch so I custom fit the box to the bottle of JW. I transferred a flammable liquid sign to the lid but forgot to take the picture. I really wanted build something rather than just give him the bottle. He really got a kick out of it and I enjoyed making a custom gift for a friend.

Thanks for looking

Great looking bottle of Scotch! And even better looking box!

Sometimes these throw-together projects are the most fun. Well done.

Love this idea and execution. Well played, sir!
