My daughter asked me to make a box for her wedding. After a few failed attempts this is what I came up with.
I wanted a box that could house the 2 rings but still be small enough to fit in a pocket for the best man. Of course the 2 rings were different diameters and widths that made the inserts challenging.
The box is made from lacewood and I choose this for the striking grain. This box is made from a single piece of timber less than 2” long and 1” square, which I then cut down and re-assembled to ensure that the grain flowed from ends to top and sides as much as possible.
My daughter and my now son-in-law loved the result…and made me a very proud father.
