I made this ring box for some friends who are about to marry. The finish is lightweight polyurethane (would welcome alternative suggestions!) and the lid is held on using a 1/4-inch dowel.

I’ve never attempted small boxes. That one looks great. They appear to present unique challenges. Making big stuff, you can hide mistakes. With small stuff, you have to be exact. Nice job!

Great looking box. I like bloodwood, I’ve used it for pens.

Very pretty. As a finishing alternative, have you ever tried Watco danish oil? It comes in colors, but I like the natural (pretty much clear) for bringing out the beauty in a good piece of wood without making it look like anything is “on top” of the wood.
