These are popular little ringboxes that I make out of offcuts,in many different woods. they are small enough to be used as pendants as well

These are great Johan. I was wondering were you got the hinges too. Can you give us a hint.

Like the idea of using every pieces of wood. I have a lot of centres from bowls cored with Dick Struessie’s
Bowl saw and you have given me another use for them. Hope you haven’t got a copyright in Oz.

Nice ring boxes. Very functional and appealing.
In case it hasn’t been asked before, where did you get the hardware?

This “hinge” I actually bought from a bead shop and is used as a clasp for necklaces. I do cut it to size to fit these boxes. It is called “clasp multi-strand – gold”. I should imagine it is freely available in local bead shops throughout, but I have anyway included a photograph to make it easier.

Beautiful little boxes Johan, and a very unique way of “hingeing” it.
Thanks for the info, any chance of including a photo of the box from the back ?

After you cut the hinge to size, did you just install in a hole? did you have to mortise it square?

Thanks again

very cool indeed. Can we see a picture of the back of the box also? I know we’re being needy, but they are really neat.
