Thanks for taking a second to check out the final product of my most recent Blog entries (which can be viewed Here and Here ). If you haven’t been following along, this is another present for a newly wed couple, albeit a second marriage. It was a beautiful outdoor wedding with very casual attire as per the wishes of the couple. They both enjoy riding motorcycles and are Harley-Davidson enthusiasts at heart.

I knew that my standard Wine boxes wouldn’t be their style, especially since the groom prefers Crown Royal as his beverage of choice. So the box dimensions needed to be altered to fit a shorter, stouter bottle. Main box is made from Cherry, the splines are walnut, and the lid is maple plywood. I found a new style of hinges that stop at 95 degrees, which is nice to display the inside engraving and the bottle I picked out which has a limited edition case with the outline of the state of Pennsylvania.

Thanks for taking the time to drop in and take a look. Also special thanks to LJ Boxguy who has sent me a bunch of links to his blogs which outline in detail the making of his style of boxes.

As always, comments welcome, and any questions will be answered!

Tooch, thanks for the shout out. This box is impressive. It looks like you have tamed the wild CNC machine. That carving on the front is super. I love the detail in it. Of course the splines really help set off the work, the faux feet add to the look, and I love the way your grain matches on the corners. What a fun project to see. Looks like the spline fever is still upon you. Keep boxing and keep posting.

That’s a great looking box! I have just recently finished a Crown Royal “box” myself! This is a whiskey cabinet I made from poplar. I didn’t know what it was gonna be when I started building it, but as it progressed, it just sorta became obvious. As it turned out, that last empty shelf in the bottom photo fits a 750 of Crown perfectly! This item is already sold.
