After resawing a piece of scrap walnut that was given to me, I knew that I had to make something with it. Booked matched the two pieces back together for the top. Just an unbelievable pattern design. Didn’t know what to use for a handle, found a neat looking knot that I think looks good.

Very nice box, grain on the top is amazing. How do you make the ring holders?

I used a piece of dense foam that I had laying around. I cut it to the size I need for each bar then I cover them with velvet from a dress that my wife got me at the second hand shop. Use 3 spray adhesive, spray the foam, then lay it on the velvet and wrap and fold in the sides, trim off extra material. Hot glue to the bottom of the tray.

I use my bandsaw and fence to cut the foam. These piece were 3/4×7/8×3 3/4.

Tsurra, this is a great box and the interior is well thought out. There is a great deal to like in this: the matched top, legs, shallow inset on top, nicely fit lid with magnetic closers, beautiful finish, and nice color choices inside and out. Keep boxing and keep posting.

Fantastic box. I like the simple exterior design. It highlights the wood.

Nicely done. The book matching makes the walnut a standout piece.
Well done.
