I was hoping some one can help me out with a simple project idea. Im building a jewlery box and was just on the site and saw this get idea for one of the boxes compartments. It’s a simple ring holder see – http://lumberjocks.com/projects/7503

This may seem like a dumb question because the idea seems pretty simple but does anyone have experience making one of these and if so could you tell me how you did it.

Is it just foam and nice fabric or is there something im missing?

Cheers

Canada – you can buy ring holders. But the ones I’ve made have been made out of high quality foam surrounded by nice material of some sort. The trick is to size them all and get them tight enough to hold the ring and not so tight that they look crowded. It’s definitely easier to buy – but with just a little time and trial and error you can make your own. You can usually get some good foam at a hobby store.

There were some interiors for a reasonable price mentioned in one of the box projects posted in the last month. I thought I book marked the source, but I can’t seem to find it. Don’t know if it is worth your time to try to find that box project. Maybe some one else will remember where it was??

If you wanted to make it yourself, I would buy some foam, and cut rows of slits about 3/4” deep (but not all the way through). Then I’d sort of roll it out around something round like an aerosol can to open up the slits, spray the wole thing with some spray adhesive, then cover it with velvet, or whatever material you choose, tucking the fabric into the slits. Flatten it out, trim off the excess fabric, and you should have a ring holder.

Note: I have no idea if the procedure above will work…. it just seems like the way I would try to do it. :-)

I have always bought them. You can find them at Rockler. They have them in a couple of different colors.
They come in various lengths and widths and you can just cut them to fit.

Foam will work. I’ve seen rubber weather stripping for a vehicle door used as well. Also have seen cardboard, wan’t the best look. Yes, they’re fairly cheap at Rockelr and you can cut it to size.
