These are images of some ring boxes I have made – again drawing inspiration from art deco and of course attention to detail being paramount.
The first ones are made from native yew and yew burr – sycamore with a ripple syc for the lid. Both are bordered in acetal and have polyester inlays. The interior is lamb nappa with a sunken area for the ring.
The last was inspired by something closer to home the Titanic’s interior which had walls panelled in oak and then into the belly of the ship was the furnace room with the furnace door that opened to the fire which was fed with coal. Made from white oak with a milled aluminium grill and lined in black suede. This box will be featured in Good woodworking magazine in April (I think).
