Friends and family will love it—And they’ll use it long after the wine is gone.
I started with some old pieces of scrap wood to create my rustic box.
Sawed ‘er up.
Fit the pieces together and glued them.
Secured the pieces in place.
Glued on a little knobby thing so my friend can slide the top open easily.
Stained and sanded the box.
And added a cool picture of my choice. (See my video How to transfer an inkjet photo to wood | Mere Mini.)
And there’s your one-of-a-kind rustic wine-bottle gift box! You might want to sign it somewhere, just in case you become a famous mere-mortal woodworker someday; your box could become extremely valuable!
