My daughter is getting married in October and she asked me to make her a ring box. She had a rough idea about the style but was not sure about the wood species or dimensions. So I built her eight boxes.

The boxes are made from a mixture of Walnut, Black Cherry, Maple, Mahogany, White Oak and Canary Wood.

I’m placing a bet on the front and center box. They are all great boxes you did fantastic.

I’m with Burly Bob “front and center box” but I’ll bet she will want more than one of your beautiful boxes.

Nice boxes. It would be hard to choose they are all very nice. Ive always loved the colors in canary wood though.

I worked in a jewelry store for 10 years, our customers often asked for better looking boxes than the fake white leather ones we used, they would have paid good money for one of these.

I agree the front center one looks most appropriate for the wedding (or the back center one), but don’t be surprised if she takes all of them and more for bridesmaid/groomsmen gifts. Looks like you’ve stumbled across a nice little side business as wedding box supplier – maybe lined with a nice fabric to match the wedding color scheme for a custom look.

Thanks for sharing.

Just an update. My daughter selected the small Canary Wood box with the Maple liner for her wedding ring box. She also took the Black Walnut box just because she wanted it. We will gift the remaining boxes to family and friends.

My daughter has made the same request. Novice here. Can you describe how you made the lids? I’m wondering if I can inset a panel in the sides of the box to form the top, and then go back and inlay a band of contrasting wood around the top’s edges in the groove where the panel meets the sides.
