Results of a commission for a ring box. Walnut and white oak, finished with linseed oil and beeswax. Inside was stolen from one of the wife’s old ring boxes.

Sorry, didn’t get a picture of the back. Hinge was also taken from an old ring box.

WOW!!! Lotta cuts on the tiny size if that is as small as I think it is.

How did you make the rips for the glue ups? I've made slivers with one of these, that I would be scared to on a bandsaw, and especially a TS. Curious what you used?

Table saw and push sticks. Approximately 3” x 2 1/2”. Didn’t spill any blood.

That’s some pretty amazing saw work to make those tiny cross-section strips! I also respect your skill at glue ups!

The top looks fantastic. I really like working small, small parts, super thin stock. It´s a challenge, a shade risky, and keeps one hyper aware.
