I made this for a good friend for Christmas last year, and I bought a nice bottle of rum (as seen in the last pic) to go inside! Made from cherry and maple. The lid is one piece cut with my Rigid tablesaw. I got the general plan from Wood magazine (I think...Hard to remember now...), but made some of my own modifications. Finished with 2 coats of semi-gloss poly. The box was nice but the rum was GREAT!
