Designed to hold two rings with removable ring trays.

The burl wood is Amboyna (I think). It came from one block of expensive wood, I know that. Because I needed to conserve the expensive wood I cut very narrow slices where the joints come together and used T-88 epoxy.

For the trays I made half blind dado’s.. I rolled up felt and tucked two rolls into each tray. With the high sides it worked out pretty neat.

Finished with a coat of Zinnser Sealcoat and three coats of wipe-on poly.

5 5/16” x 2 7/8” x 2 1/4”

Those are some fine looking boxes. You’re right, that burl is evenly beautiful.
