Malaysian Acacia, Oak & Wenge Ring Box
Some of the most rewarding projects I take on in the wood shop are boxes. The basics remain the same, with a universe of creative possibilities presented each and every time. This particular ring box is crafted of Malaysian acacia, oak and Wenge.
The box is quadruple mitered, meaning that all the edges flow together without the 90 degree break seen in flat tops and bottoms. The visual effect is the horizontal grain spills over the edges rather than breaking. To the naked it eye, it presents a puzzle- how did he do that?
Rather than adding a bulky hinge, the box features a slip-over lid system, and with the matching wedge strip it's never a task to fit it back on correctly.
Measuring 2"x2"x2", this ring box is a perfect replacement from the generic boxes given at the jeweler's shop. Designed and crafted to last, this box makes a wonderful heirloom-quality gift.
