This is my “Bright” Ring Box. It measures 3 1/2” x 3 1/2” and is 2” high. There are 72 pieces, both full and half size diamonds and triangles, on this box. On the top there are 32 half-size pieces where it would normally have 16 full size pieces. It is finished in its natural color with 5 or 6 coats of clear wiping varnish, rubbed in by hand. The pieces are a bit over 3/16” thick, glued onto a Baltic Birch base.
The type of wood is listed on the bottom of the box from the center out. On this box is “Hackberry” from Missouri, “Purpleheart” from Central or South America, “Wenge” from West Africa, “Satinwood” from Sri Lanka and “Walnut” from Missouri.
On the bottom I signed it, listed the wood, and dated it. After the date, the words “Foot Cut” let you know I made it on a foot powered table saw.
It is lined with black velveteen. It has 3 “ring pads” on the bottom forming 2 slots about 2 ½” long, for rings.
I have a matching set of up to 8 different boxes with this design and coloring I will be showing.
Now this video again was made by Tara (weirdwolf) from Etsy.com. She can take the credit for the good picture quality of this video.
Thank you for looking,
