I wanted to make a round box for the engagement ring that I’m going to present to my girlfriend. It’ll probably be six months before she gets it. Lumberjocks is getting a sneak preview.
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 but she will never notice. This is not the engagement ring. Still need to acquire that. This ring is just piece of play jewelry I found in her ‘jewelry bowl’. A real jewelry box is on the project list.
There’s a blog entry for how I did this piece and a couple of progress photos.
