I’m making a round ring box out of a 2×2 piece of Bloodwood.
I would like the top to slide off the bottom similar to a shoebox.
I don’t have a lathe, so I’m using a technique on my router table. Circles attached to the ends, repeated passes over a bottom cleaning router bit.
Once I have created a cylinder, I’m planning on cutting the shoulder somewhere near the middle (using the same technique) and then separating the top at one end of the shoulder.
Drill a hole in the top to accept the shoulder part of the bottom and then drill out the centers of both pieces.
An alternative is to separate the top and bottom and then route the shoulder into the bottom.
Anyone have any other suggestions/ideas that doesn’t involve a lathe?
-- Measure it with a micrometer, mark it with chalk, cut it with an axe.
