We have a wide range of different skills within the forum, and it seems to have more than its fair share of creative people.

I am looking for somebody to make a wooden ring box for a ring that I have bought. I want something contemporary, rather than the traditional flip open type. Is this anybody's hobby/work, or do you have any contacts? i have seen a couple of bits on the internet, but they are not quite what i am looking for.

Thanks
Mark

Hi mark I have being a joiner for 29 years now and for the last 15 years have concentrated in fine cabinet work also have a fully equipped workshop so I think I may be able to handle a ring box also have lots of interesting timbers from various jobs

Ok the design of the ring box is sorted a bit of plagiarism on the go although I will give all the credit to that particular member of the royal family who came up with a similar design. The box itself is a bit special and different marcros has got good taste Wenge and Sycamore the two timbers with a bit of silver inlayed its going to be a bit more fiddly than the 14X12 BB and the 14X12 standard BB conversions I am making next week I may post a photo of its ok with marcros when its finished

Ok the box almost finished just the engraved silver plaque and a buildup of the wax finish I have gone with will give it a nice tactile feel to it

So the box needs to be first pulled apart exposing the small wooden hinge then it can be fully opened

So nice to see the true craftsmen skills have not vanished.

Well done, I love the hinge mechanism.

Last time I saw work as good as that was 54 years ago whilst in the RAF in Northern Ireland :). A national service lad , converted a cigar box into a jewellery box ,by lining it and covering the outside painstakingly with marquetry.
The finished product was beautiful to behold :).
It was a labour of love being as it was for his girlfriend (Bless)

Well doneTom, you have a talent there.

I too play with bits of wood but my results are not like this.
