Handcrafted woodwork designed for use in storage and display. Boxes, cabinets, display cases and shadowboxes to provide safe environments for collectibles and to help keep special items close at hand. Perfect for small places needing to combine style & storage. Everything listed on my site is completely handmade by me in my shop from scratch. I use mostly recycled & reclaimed wood for my creations and focus on domestic woods and avoid any endangered exotic woods. Please contact me via email (jmcraftworks@gmail.com) for a custom order and I’d be happy to help with an original design for a special one-of-a-kind handcrafted item, a custom ring box, coin display case & mount, or a keepsake box.

Another Dozen Little Ring Boxes

Another Dozen Little Ring Boxes

Current batch of tiny ring boxes, a mix of domestic woods that I was able to find at salvage yards. Reclaimed wood comes in different sizes & thicknesses and there's no telling what you might find at any given time. These little boxes make good use of these fine hardwood scraps and I'm able to give the wood a second life. At the moment, I have about 3 dozen in different stages of completion, with this group being ready to list and the remaining ones still needing sanding and coats of finish. When finished, they include black foam inserts to secure rings in place and the foam is simply pressed in place, meaning it can be easily removed if needed. Most of the interior sizes are based around US Quarters, meaning that they'll easily hold rings up to approximately 1" in diameter, which should accommodate most ring sizes. In my listings, I include coins for scale in case a potential client doesn't know the ring size needed and there's a link to a ring sizing chart on Wikipedia.
