Here are some pictures of the small, rustic hickory ring boxes I’ve started making.
These were made from hickory that had been sitting up for a few years now, so the pieces are quite dry. I like using hickory for these because it holds the bark extremely well.
The lid swivels to open and can also be completely removed. Magnets hold the parts together and in alignment.
The edges were gently eased with sandpaper. The cut faces were rubbed with a walnut oil.
