I recently saw a nice little wooden wine carrying box in a home goods store, and thought that would be a good project to make for gifts. Some of the compartments could be used for wine, and others could be used for olive oil, packages of pasta, etc.
Here is the original item I saw.
And below is the pattern I created, based on that, using the @kigster box generator as a base.
The darker lines represent 1/8" engraves for the inner sides and bottom to hold the inner vertical panels in place.
I made an extra triangular top piece for each end to provide additional support for the carrying handle. These extra pieces would be glued in on the inside.
The long bar in the middle at the top is actually a cut pattern (viewed from above) of a wooden dowel that would be used for the handle. I would cut off a small slice on each side and on each end to match the hole patterns on the ends of the case. I would also slice of a bit from the middle on each side of the dowel to make it flat to facilitate engraving a person’s name or whatever on it later.
Of course, you can also engrave logos, names, sayings, designs, etc. on the outside on the case to personalize it.
Now if I just had a GF to try it out…
