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, walnut, maple, olive, mahogany
Early project this year - 2018. A dozen small ring boxes sold to a jewelry shop in Vermont
These are variations on my basic ring box design.  Using contrasting woods and inset pairs of magnets to secure the two halves together.  The smaller ones hold a single ring, while the larger ones can hold 2, 3, or 4 rings.  The insert is a strip of black foam that grips the rings securely but allows enough flexiblity to hold different widths of ring bands. 

If you're unsure of the size of your ring, you can confirm at the Wikipedia Ring Sizing Chart:
