Fantastic ring box. Love the magnet hinge. Never would have thought of such a great design touch. Great choice of woods also.

Keep it up.

Neat little ring box. Like the use of magnets for hinging the top. Nice job, geppetto!

Thank you. Another variation is to move the magnets to the top. The lid can slide left or right.

Have to do some boxes with that kind of opening.
