This is a small ring box, aka grease box, that I built for my daughter out of a few scraps and about 1 hours worth of work. It is Maple sandwiched by Walnut, it is 2.25” square and pivots on a 3/16” dowel. The box was sanded to 320 grit and spray finished with 3 coats Minwax Fast-Drying Polyurethane, sanding with 600 grit between the 2nd and last coats. It was a blast to make and once lined with felt, it will hold my daughters wedding rings when she does the dishes.
Now, I think this also qualifies me for the Grease Box owners Club, if not then I’ll make another one.
It was a blast to make and I now know that my belt sander is not square to the table, a minor problem that will be fixed soon.
