This is another of my presentation wine boxes. It resembles the Bevo-Mill in St. Louis, Mo. That was my inspiration and I had a lot of fun building it. The main body is a glue up of oak, turned on the lathe and painted to resemble a plaster finish. The balance of the wood is also oak with the bottom section covered with a vinyl tile to try and simulate a stone overlay.
I need to paint the screw holding the windmill blades and a couple of other minor details. Enjoy

Ok so I don’t drink wine but I do have a lot of dutch blood in me so I like this project, reminds me of Pella, Iowa :) ‘we zullen gewoon moeten afwachten…..’ my favorite dutch phrase thanks to my grandpa.

Very creative and a nice way to present wine! Great attention to details.
