I’m looking for some help making an engagement ring box for my girlfriend. I’m a beginner woodworker. I’ve made boxes before. Doug Stowe style lift lid and sliding lid boxes. I want this one to be special, so any help with plans and ideas would be appreciated.

I have a limited set of tools, so there are certain operations I can’t perform. I don’t have a drill press, so drilling holes for hinges isn’t ideal. I have a table saw and router table, so plans / ideas that utilize these tools would be appreciated. Thanks!

First off, congratulations!

Second, if you live near a woodcraft, see if thy offer a “turned lidded box” class. I have yet to take that one, but it’s on my list.

Third, how about a small sliding lid box out of some super nice, figured wood? It can be the same design as a previously built box, but since it will feature nice/nicer wood???

Look up britboxmaker on here for ideas on folded miter boxes. You can use both table saw and router table to make a very nice, unusual box.

Make sure to check out his blogs as he gives great instructions on how he does these.

I appreciate all the comments. Sorry for the delayed response.

I did look up the folded mitre technique and I also found a video on how to do it. My only question is this, if I wanted to dimension the box so it was 2 3/8” x 2 3/8” x 2 3/8 what size would my blanks be? Thanks.
