Dear LJ’s,

I think it’s about time to overcome the FPS (First Post Syndrome). Being so, here it goes:

Ring & Earring boxes, common walnut structure (Juglans regia, Portugal), spalted beech lid (Fagus sylvatica, UK), beech internal dividers (Fagus sylvatica, Germany) and ebony handle (Diospyros crassiflora, Gabon)

I hope you enjoy this.

Please accept my true season’s greetings (Merry Christmas & Happy New Year).

Excellent combination of woods. Very pleasing to the eye, well done. How did you attach the bottom of the box ?

As everyone, I think these are beautiful boxes. I’m especially impressed by the consistent chamfer that breaks the edges…really defines the planes.


-- Donn,

Great first post. This is jumping in with both feet! Very nice boxes. I do have a question about what a ‘hearing’ box is? Welcome to Lumberjocks

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and so little time!

Fellow LJ’s.

Thank you for your encouraging comments about this.

kokaneesailor: The bottom is a 3mm thick walnut panel. It’s held by a slot, 3mm deep, routed 2mm from the bottom of all four sides.

robert triplett: First I was intrigued with your question. Then I realized that the reason was my poor English into action. I already corrected it. Thank you for making me notice this.

Wow… I’ll have to keep an eye open for more spalted wood. No telling how many times I’ve tossed wood out that could be used to make something great! Thanks for the inspiration, great job!
