OK Russel, here’s the first project I’ve posted in many moons. It is the very popular “ring box”. Half of you have probably have made one already. This one is slightly unique. It’s a great way to get rid of those scraps you’ve been burning or saving for a freeloading friend (LOL). You know who you are.
This box measures 5” x 4” x 3” and is a combination of Maple and Peruvian Walnut. I make four sizes of these and this one being the largest. I specialize in the boxes with the fancy joinery, but these ring boxes pay the bills.
The finish is tung oil and then buffed out using The Beall Wood Buff system : http://lumberjocks.com/reviews/496
I have included a couple of pictures to give you an idea of its construction. I am creating a series of podcasts of many of my construction methods. This box is the first, and only one of you has seen it. It’s still in a secret location.
