Weekend Projects: Custom Wine Box & Quick Pendant


#1

My wife and I will be meeting up with some relatives in a couple weeks and plan to give them a bottle of Chianti we bought on our trip to Italy last year. The bottle’s a bit fat for a typical wine bottle holder so … type to create something on the EZForge!

Not the best box out there, I’m sure but I’m still learning the ins and outs of Illustrator, etc. I was working on making a box from scratch, but I can’t remember where I saw the excellent video tutorial on making boxes with illustrator for the laser so I used a web box maker. Still, a lot of fun with this project. Also, a short while ago, my wife was going through some jewelry parts and one thing led to another and I ended up making the pendant in the photo. It’s amazing how easy and quick that is with the glowforge… :slight_smile:

Lovely box! Really suits the bottle of bubbly! (Yeah, I know it’s not champagne, but I’m going for alliterative license.) :grinning:

Nice favor.
Don’t think that is one that will get re-gifted.

It looks pretty awesome to me :smile:


#5

Seconded! It looks really great, I’d love to receive something that has so much thought and attention put into it (plus the wine inside :wink:)!

Wow, great projects! You got some great shading on that wine bottle image, and the pendant.

Looks amazing! I’m sure you can’t wait to give it to them!

Great idea using the cut-outs as added decoration. Beautiful job!
