Take a look at all of the pictures PLEASE. The cool part about this piece is what’s inside.
I had a core left over from another box project and decided to see what I could do. Since this was a core I had it in my mind about making things progressively smaller. As I cut out the core for the drawer, I made another box that would fit inside and just kept going. I ended up with 5 boxes each progressively smaller than the last. I think I could have gone one more smaller but it wouldn’t have been able to even hold a ring.
Canarywood is a pretty dense wood to work but finishes wonderfully. It has all sorts of reds and purples that streak through it.
The outside dimensions are 6” wide, 4” tall, and 4” deep. The insides of the boxes are flocked with wine colored fibers. The finish is thinned polyurethane. I had a cool, rustic looking pull that I have been wanting to use and it looked great on this box.
I was thinking about selling this box to someone who is ready to propose. They could put the engagement ring in the smallest box and close it all up. I was thinking that would be a neat way to pop the question.
Thanks for looking.
