Mulberry ring box. Ring dividers are some thin foam rolled up and stuffed inside, then covered with fabric. I liked the sapwood so kept as much as possible. Also kept the bark on the front of the lid. Very humble construction, glue and screws with walnut plugs covering the screws. Finished with water based poly only.

KA, This is a nice box. I like that you have left the natural edge on the front and the grain pattern is quite appealing. I see you have followed your mantra of keeping things simple. The internal parts are a nice thought. You might consider moving to piano hinges. This blog entry might be of interest. Link Your design and wood choices show that you have a real eye for design. Keep boxing and keep posting.

Love the top on that one. I have some mulberry drying and can’y wait to use it. Wish there was a way to keep that fresh cut yellow color from browning.
