Here is a special project for storing and displaying a special ring. The box is 4 1/16” square and 4 13/16” high.
The top is cut at a 60º angle and has a flush cover. The entire project is 1/2” bubinga and is finished with 3 coats of danish oil. The cover is hinged with brass pins, is opened with a small brass knob and the ring-post platform is glued directly to the back of the cover.(see picture #5 above) This design swings the ring post up out of the box as you open the cover; yet keeps the ring front and center in the glass for maximum visibility. The post platform and the bottom of the box are lined with purple ultra suede, and the ring post is crystal super glued into a recess drilled in the 1/2” post platform. Although the photo’s show one of my wife’s rings, the box was built to house a state championship football ring (photo #6) which is being presented to a disabled member of the championship teams class. Although disabled, the young man never missed one of the teams games during his four years in high school; the team named him an honorary member of the team and wanted him to have a championship ring as well. It was an honor for me to be part of this very moving story.
