    Default Ring Box

    My first winter with a heated shop, so I can't seem to stay out of it. Here's one of the recent smaller projects...

    I bought the little lady a diamond. I couldn't deliver the ring in the crappy cardboard box that the jeweler gave me, so it sounded like a good HSM project...

    It's made out of Tulipwood, which actually machined extremeley well. The brass plate on the bottom is 1/2" thick, so the box is surprisingly heavy when held. I had our initials engraved on the bottom. Tung oil finish. Neodymium magnet and a piece of drill rod for the closure.

    She said yes, BTW

    A beautiful job.

    Thumbs up Congratulations!

    Wow! That's nice looking wood. The ring ain't bad either. And by the looks of it, you gave up a lot of mighty fine tools. I'm not sure I could do that myself. She must be a great find.

    Hee hee
    Yeah, It was impossible to buy the ring without thinking of the tools I could be buying but she's a great girl. It was most certainly the right thing to do. Tools come and go.
    A plasma cutter and a new rifle would have been nice, though
