I made this ring box 2 to 3 weeks ago. It’s made of Zebra Wood and Red Oak. I used a simple hinge that I picked up from Michaels for a few bucks. Also used 4 neodymium magnets to assist the lid with closing.

I finished it with 2 coats of Danish oil. Here’s a short tutorial for those interested.

This box did not turn out as i originally designed, but that’s the cool thing about woodworking—you can improvise as you go.

I used a chop saw for most of the cuts and the biggest thing I learned for next box I make is to use a zero clearance plate or fence.

This project was a lot of fun to make.

Love the look of that box. The woodgrain is beautiful.
