This is a Purpleheart and Spalted Beech ring box I turned to hold the engagement ring I wanted to give my partner, Sue. She’s now my fiancee so that worked out well :)
The box is cut with a wavy line whilst still square then put back together. Mounted in the lathe, I turned the outside then hollowed each half in turn, having turned down the Spalted Beech insert which I mounted in the Purpleheart, hollowed down to match the inside of the piece then finished.
I think I got the idea for the box from another project on LJs but can’t remember who so if anyone knows, let me know and I’ll put them in here somehow :)
Also wanted to post something on Lumberjocks as I’ve got so many great ideas from the guys on here over the past 18 months or so.
