In Old World Artisan Style a toasting box design with a Grizzly Bear theme!
This was a commissioned toasting box. Features several wood types and hand carving. The Spanish cedar cigar drawer has a handle made from a spent 270 brass which shows through the front when box is closed. This box also has a hiding place built in for the key. The primary wood used in the box is black walnut. The handle was carved from laminated wood for the strength. The recipients initials were carved in the African blackwood top bottle retainer and the bottom bottle retainer has hand carved bears as well. The door latch is hand carved ebony and walnut burl depicting the American Indian symbol of the Spirit Bear. The four tumblers rest on shelves with pull-out bottoms which have stops to keep them from coming all the way out.
This box will be used for special family occasions where a toast is in order. It will then be handed down to the family generations!
