Just guessing, but this old (late 1800's) box appears to have been a file box originally. The current owner decided to store wine in it, so my part of this was making bottle partitions. The exterior & interior will be refinished and the partitions stained by someone else.

Don't know if I'll be able to get pics, but I'll ask. It will hold 9 bottles with a little space left over.

Hey Gene,

Nice work!
I always like to see an "elder" rescued for continued service.

Well done,
Tom

Really, nice clean work there Gene.

Not so sure about it's use for wine, but I'd store some single malt in it.
:D
