Really nice Gene. What a great gift. I see some grain matching in the corner and some curly in that Maple. You built the knob also? Simple elegance.

Thanks everyone, for your kind words.
Jeff, yep, built that little sucker, too. And, your vision isn’t failing. the box was made from one piece, 45’s were cut and care was taken to align the grain. Used the tape up trick for clamps.

Thanks Prof. and Jim.Prof, I used a kid’s pool noodle. Cut it lengthwise at about 1/3 of the diameter, cut a slit on the curved side and the wife covered it all with a scrap of her soft quilt material. She says the material is called called “Minkey”.

Looks very nice from here but you need to hinge the lid or some nervous Nellie will drop it while trying to get the ring out during the ceremony!

Thanks, Andy. Maybe we should tape it to the ring bearer’s hands.

Good plan!My daughter was a ring bearer when she was little and did a cartwheel coming down the aisle! My wife almost died. I loved it (and she didn’t drop the ring)
