Here is my latest project, a Valentine’s Day gift for my wife to hold her wedding ring set. The top and bottom are red oak, while the middle is a block of poplar and pine laminated like you would do for a bandsaw box. I “cored” out the middle block on my bandsaw to create the interior of the box.
The inside will be lined with felt or velvet, along with a styrofoam block covered in felt with slits to hold her rings.
The technique was pretty straightforward, but sanding the top to match the exact dimensions of the body required a few tries to get a good fit.
Now that I’ve acquired a tablesaw, jointer and planer, I think I’ll try a more traditional box next.
Comments and suggestions are welcome. Thanks for looking. :)
