I built this box for a friend’s birthday. Spalted maple was used for the main box construction.

darn nice box and we all know you shouldn’t someone an empty box. I wonder which they will notice first – the box or the contents ?
Very nice gift

Mmmm…the box is wonderful! The contents better! Small batch is great. Single Barrel is my favorite bourbon.

I would suggest a blonde shellac thinned in Johnny Walker blue label for the finish.
