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.

Handmade Wooden Ring Boxes

End of 2016, start of 2017, I've been putting batches of little ring boxes on my Etsy site. These are all different sizes, shapes, and combinations of hardwoods, mostly stuff I've recycled from different sources. We have a Habitat for Humanity Resale Shop here in town, as well as a Second Chance Building Materials Center, Reuse Market and a Reuseum. From time to time, I've managed to find nice hardwoods at all these places and for the tiny things I make, it goes a long way.

These little boxes are held together with tiny hidden magnets, making them easy to pop open and snap shut. And each comes with a folded insert that will securely grip rings so if you want to keep them hidden for a surprise presentation, they won't rattle.
