I'm placing a bet on the front and center box. They are all great boxes you did fantastic.

I'm with Burly Bob "front and center box" but I'll bet she will want more than one of your beautiful boxes.

Nice boxes. It would be hard to choose they are all very nice. Ive always loved the colors in canary wood though.

I worked in a jewelry store for 10 years, our customers often asked for better looking boxes than the fake white leather ones we used, they would have paid good money for one of these.

I agree the front center one looks most appropriate for the wedding (or the back center one), but don't be surprised if she takes all of them and more for bridesmaid/groomsmen gifts. Looks like you've stumbled across a nice little side business as wedding box supplier - maybe lined with a nice fabric to match the wedding color scheme for a custom look.

Thanks for sharing.

Outstanding work! On first, you can't figure they are so small.

Just an update. My daughter selected the small Canary Wood box with the Maple liner for her wedding ring box. She also took the Black Walnut box just because she wanted it. We will gift the remaining boxes to family and friends.

My daughter has made the same request. Novice here. Can you describe how you made the lids? I'm wondering if I can inset a panel in the sides of the box to form the top, and then go back and inlay a band of contrasting wood around the top's edges in the groove where the panel meets the sides.

I made the entire boxes first then cut the lids off with my tablesaw. I used a 1/8 hardwood ply laminated to a 1/2" board, then assembled the boxes.

Sure you can inset the lids to make the top then inlay a band. That would look nice. Another idea is to cut a groove then fill with colored epoxy and sand down. See this link about epoxy inlay:
