Here are 4 wine boxes I made for Christmas gifts. Wood is elm, finish is danish oil followed by wax. Grape clusters were routed with my palm router, and painted with acrylic paint. The first one I made has a hinged door, the rest have sliding tops. I have 9 more to go.

That’s an ambitious project. These four came out well. Good luck on the rest of them.

Those look like wonderful gift boxes. I like the detail of the grapes.
