Wedding wine & letter box woodworking project and video. Handmade walnut box for my wife and my non-traditional wedding ceremony. Handcrafting something special for our Wedding Ceremony, choosing to solely use hand tools (save for the sander) in this woodworking project, was very important to me.
Follow along as I show the project build from design concept and sketches to completion. This video more focused on the process, design, and story behind this sentimental piece. I do dive into tools and supplies needed and other details, though. Check out the accompanying blog post for more, as well. Hand-rubbed danish oil finish, with special focus on sanding and finishing in the video.
Being a designer and maker means more than just brainstorming, it means dreaming, breathing, and living the piece that you’re making. Heart and soul, blood, sweat, and tears. You don't have to be the groom or bride to make this, this would make an excellent sentimental wedding gift for the couple if you're an attending guest or if you are in the wedding party.

The idea behind this addition to a Wedding Ceremony is this: you make the wine & letter box, preferably in purist and romantic fashion, by hand, get a good bottle of wine, and write love letters to each other. During the Wedding Ceremony you can have “letter bearers” bring the letters down the aisle (shoutout to my 2 youngest nephews - you both did a great job). You appoint a time during the Ceremony to together, as a couple, place the letters and the wine into the box and seal it shut.
The thought is that you’ll then open the box on your 5th Anniversary, enjoy the wine and read the letters that you wrote to each other. If you find that your marriage has hit a rough patch, this box is always here for you, open it sooner. This may not seem like the most romantic thing to address on a Wedding Day, to think about the days when things will be hard, but be realistic and know that marriage takes work.
