This is a ring box that I got the idea and permission to use from a fellow LJ. I just dont like the original jewelry box that much. It is made of Jobillo, very beautiful wood! A little late on the post since we have been married over a year now ha. Used a rod for the top to pivot. I did have a problem with the piece checking following the original cutout that I posted when I was working on it. It ended up looking pretty good with that once it was finished. You only know if your looking for it, and she Loves it which is the important thing!
