About Us

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.

Seven new Ring Boxes with Recycled Hardwoods

Handmade Ring Boxes using Walnut, Acacia, Mahogany, Cherry Woods
This group of small boxes were made using scraps of recycled woods from the Habitat for Humanity Restore shop. I'm using a design that allows me to inset a panel in the top. I like using contrasting woods side-by-side and for six of the seven I used very rustic acacia wood for the top. You can find these and lots more at my Etsy shop.

In my listings, I usually include coins in the photos for scale to help a potential client visualize how small these are. Also there's a link to a ring sizing chart on Wikipedia.
