I've been searching for the equipment so I can make wooden cases for my bottles.
I'm pretty set on doing thru dovetails, but I'll be droppping quite a bit of money on this.
My question goes out to all of you. If I started producing these, would you buy them.
I don't know what the material would cost yet, but I wouldn't up the price much from there. Enough to cover materials, my time, and offset the cost of the jig a little.
There would be recessed handles, but not let light thru. The cover will be able to be propped up so you could display what ever was on the lid (you could burn or paint something on there) I was thinking about offering to have a template made to burn in, but that would be getting a little excentric and costly.
Bottles not included at this timme, but maybe in the future if there was enough interest.
I'd also make cases for swing tops (16's, 22's, 1L's), 22's, 750ml wine bottles. Maybe 2 750ml gift cases. 12 pack carriers.
I've only got the standard 12's figured out right now, but if there is interest I will go thru with the purchase and start making them. i've got interest at my LHBS, but not enough to validate the purchase.
So what do you think?
