Wedding Presentation Box. A friend requested a box with linked rings on the top, to be used to present a special wedding gift…. and then to become a momento of the event. The box is made of walnut and features a pair of linked maple rings on top, as well as maple splines. It is approx. 7×5 inches and the lid is hinged with hidden pins. The lid lift and stop is dadoed into the lid. It is finished with satin poly and lined with soft leather.

Nice one. The leather lining works great with the walnut, and the rings are both appropriate and attractive. I’m sure the new owners will treasure it for decades.

Very attractive and nicely crafted with appropriate decoration and leather bottom.

A lovely box indeed! I especially like how you made the lid lift cut across the box . . . nice touch.

That is a beauty JB. Really like the rings on the top, and all the other details. Super nice. The new couple should really luv it.

That is a really nice box John. I particularly like the way the lid lift is fitted into the box. Well done!
