I wanted to make a round box.

I started with a 2×2 piece of bloodwood and turned it on my router table. I capped it with curly maple.

I had a great time. Plenty of mistakes. Just a toy ring in the photo.

There’s a blog entry for how I did this piece and a couple of progress photos.

Nice job, very unique design. You might want to try marketing those.

A piece of friendly advice from someone who spent 10 years selling jewelry – if comes down to a choice between better quality and larger size, go with quality.

And I think you mean “jewelry bowl” instead of “bowel” – at least I hope so. :)

Congratulations on the box and best wishes for the future.

Nice design concept! I like how it does not look like a ring box – until you open it…

I have a raft of design ideas for these and I will probably look at marketing them once I work out some kinks. I’ve started writing up my process and will put it in my blog soon.
