This past weekend I proposed to my long time girlfriend (spoiler – she said yes!).

I bought the ring over a month ago, and decided I wanted to build my own engagement ring box. Having no clue how to do that, I would work everyday for 30 minutes either building, researching, filming, or editing trying to figure out how to pull it together in secret and to make it as great as it could be.

Here is the full video of my build. If you want a written article for details, you can find it in the description of the vid.

Best weekend ever.

Zach, congrats and best wishes to you and your wife to be. A great build for sure. It will have long lasting memories for both of you. Don’t forget to keep tabs on the box so you can ‘refill’ it on those special occasions … anniversaries, birthdays, new borns, etc.

Oh yea – I’m excited to have it as a family box moving forward – something that ideally will be around long after I am!
