How To Build a Wine Display Case

How To Build a Wine Display Case

I built this wine display box out of walnut and accented the lid with Genuine Mahogany.
The wine and glass holder is custom made in the shop, where I CNC’d out a block of foam and flocked it with green flocking.
The box started out pretty straightforward, then as I got into creating the insert to hold the wine glasses, it got a bit complicated and tedious to get the perfect shape to hold the glasses.

The insert is made out of rigid insulation foam and then flocked with green flocking


A Special Thank you to Elements Wood Imports for providing the beautiful Mahogany for this project.
Their genuine mahogany is urban old-growth, not plantation grown, and is sustainably harvested from St. Lucia.
Mike and Carly begin the journey of importing after visiting their sister and brother-in-law who live in Saint Lucia where they discovered that the trees grow like weeds there. Their trees are sourced from private property near people’s homes, making it “island urban lumber”. They are the only importers of mahogany from Saint Lucia.

Also a special thanks to Brusso hardware for providing me with such high-quality hinges
