Building a wine box
The first step of the woodworking project is to build the frame for the wine box. You can use 3/8″ wood, plywood or even 1x3s. Cut both sides of the slats at 45 degrees to make miter joints. Add glue, align the edges and use brad nails to lock the components together.
Cut the bottom and attach it to the box frame. Align the edges, making sure they are flush. Add glue to the joints and insert the brad nails.
Build the top lid from 3/8″ wood. Adjust the with to 1 1/4″. Cut both sides of the components at 45 degrees. Make sure the corners are square and align the edges with attention. Add glue to the joints and insert brad nails.
Attach the top of the frame. Align the edges, making sure they are flush. Use brad nails and glue to lock the top to the frame of the lid.
Use small hinges to secure the lid to the wine box.
Add a latch to the front of the wine box. This detail will enhance the look of the project and make it look more authentic.
Fill the holes with wood putty and let them dry out for a few hours. Smooth the surface with 100-200 grit sandpaper and remove the residues with a damp cloth.
Top Tip: Apply a few coats of paint or stain to the components, to enhance the look of the project.
