My oldest Son has a collection just North of 50 Guitars and buys his pics by the gross. He asked me to make him a little box to store them in – here is what I came up with. It is Walnut and Maple it’s 4 1/2” tall and 2” in diameter. I turned a solid bottom from a piece of Maple, then attached the Ringmaster rings to the bottom while it was still mounted to the lathe, letting it dry overnight prior to sanding. I finished with BLO and applied some Ren Wax for the final finish.
