    As some of you know, my son is getting married this fall. His fiancee was looking at ring boxes on Etsy and asked if I could make one.
    NEVER one to back away from a challenge, I said yes. Since they got engaged in some woods that her grandfather owns, I went there to harvest some wood to make it a bit more special.
    Needless to say, I made a few "prototypes" as I experimented.
    Here's a coupled of photos of the finished product. Since the picture was shot, I have added a 1/4" magnet to the base and a countersink nail head in the lid as a way to slow the swing of the barrel hinge.

      Jim very nice they will be treasured. I assume you have a dowel or peg inserted to allow the top to turn. How big are they in diameter?

        Was going to use a peg, but found something called "Roto-hinge" at Lee Valley. Top and bottom are glued and it pivots on small steel rod. It runs about 3.5". The hole for the rings is 1 3/8" Forstner.

          I really like that! How did you make sure that the hinge pin holes were aligned?

            One one of the prototypes, I used a 1/16th drill bit through the lid to mark the bottom section and used sawdust and glue to fill the hole and was okay, but for the final one, i placed the hinge in the lower hole and put lipstick on the very top of the hinge and carefully lowered the lid to mark the center of the hole--if that makes sense.

              Beautiful piece that will be truly treasured by for you going above and beyond to get that special wood from a place that has much meaning for several reasons, and for the person who made it with such love for them both.

                Creating more treasures for the wedding. I like your use of lipstick, but none in our house.

                    Scott, I was referring to her pms to Bill Wilson and Quartz. They posted her reply by pms instead of on here.
                    Would be nice Quartz. I asked got Bob to put the issue next tp patterns and he said something about real estate. He found a way to do it and didn’t lose any real estate. Guess they don’t...

                    I would be pleased if FC at least did a trial of printing A pattern on regular sized text and also providing a scale up factor. Their resistance to do anything if a real pain. It was a similar lack of action with the website that resulted in lost viewers.

                    I think Kelly did that because I wrote a letter to the editor complaining about an article in the last addition. It was the article about staying connected online and it didn't mention the FC forum....

                    The fastest I've ever seen one of those 3d deer cuts was by Rick Hutcheson. That man was super fast when we was working the shows.

                    Here he is much more recently, and a bit slower: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=riPDY6M-Lv8
