My sister asked me to make a ring box for my niece’s wedding. Looked for ideas on the web, but didn’t see anything I liked. This box is made with cherry, walnut, maple and canarywood and finished with BLO and then waxed. The cherry is pretty old and is so much darker than any of the cherry I’ve been able to purchase lately. I’m very pleased the way the woods work together, and still need to add a pillow to hold the rings.

This ring box should be very well welcomed.The different rings of wood and the hearts on top are great. Nice work.

That’s one nice box, but the rings on top put it over the top

I like everything about this box – oktogon shape, wood combination and specialy the hearths on top. Beautiful work buddy!

Thanks guys, the pictures don’t show how smooth the surface is. The finish is probably the best I’ve ever done. This time I sanded up to 400 grit and then used 0000 steel wool before and after BLO and then I waxed it.
