I had to bring a present for a buddy of mine, and he only wished for bottles of alcohol.
Therefor i made him a box for a bitter snaps, out of raw MDF scrap wood. I used a CNC Router for the skull, just because i can. :)
Hinges, locks, and foam, is from old boxes that was thrown away also.
Get a bottle of whatever, and measure the dimensions. This will be the measure for the inside. +5mm for a perfect fit.
Step 1: Stuff I Did Not Take Pictures Of:
The box was sawed out with 45 degrees edges, and glued together.
Foam was added, and a little bump made in it for the bottle neck to rest on.
I rounded the edges with an R6, and only touched the lid with sanding papir.
Sanding > cleaning > paint = 1. Prime in the skull
sanding > cleaning > paint = 2. Prime the box
sanding > cleaning > paint > paint. = 2x Colour of whatever you like.
Step 2: Finishing
Hinges and locks was added, and i gave the skull a bit of a outer line so it would stand out a bit more.
Hope you liked my treasure chest of DOOM!
It's an easy build, i would say 2/10 without the skull, and 6/10 with it.
