Wedding Wine Boxes. About four years ago, my wife and I began to make these for wedding presents. I’ll make the box from walnut and the lid from spalted maple. My wife does all the detail (lettering and dates). She goes to Michael’s craft store and buys packages of letters and numbers and carefully glues them on. We put first names of the bride and groom, the date of their wedding and a large letter of the last name that they plan to use. If the bride wishes to keep her name, we will put something other than a letter, which you’ll see two boxes that are like that. I use the walnut shavings that I accumulated milling the lumber to 1/2 inch, put it inside with a bottle of wine and their wedding card. It really personalizes a wedding present, which is the goal. We have received very thoughtful thank you’s. Newlyweds have really liked these. Have made probably 15-17 the past four years.

Beautiful personalized box and gift. I like that rustic ‘touch’’.
