Very unique design/build of a ring box, using some unusual WW techniques/methods, but IMO a bit too much glue. Proves a lot of big heavy equipment and "toys" are not needed to have great results. Congrats on your engagement, and thanks for sharing. Be safe.

Thanks! Yea I mean I didn't quite know what I wanted out of it, but I knew I'd want to be planing the wood, which in my opinion, requires enough to have no gaps, etc. Either way, it was a wonderful project that I used quite a few techniques to get right. Thank you for watching!

Nice build. Pretty little box. Lucky fiancee, to have a hand made ring box.

Congratulations and good luck with the engagement, the interim and the marriage.

Nice project, but I cringed when I saw how unsafely you were working in spots. The way you did the chamfer on the top with the router was downright scary, and the same can be said for your use of the circular saw later on when you were making your jig to rout the interior. I would remove those portions of the video so as not to give people the false impression that it was a safe way to work.

Nice looking box, I hope she said yes LOL

And yeah you might want to work a little safer, not that I can say I always do, but it is the best to be careful

Thanks. I do call out that the router portion was not as safe as I'd like it to have been.

What is wrong with the circular saw portion with the jig?

at 4:50, you're holding a fairly small piece of wood with one hand while using the other to cut it with the circular saw. Basically nothing is secured as it should be and you don't have adequate control of either thing.

Not trying to nitpick...but that is plenty safe...

Thats also sped up by 300%, I have full control over both, the circular saw has a blade guard over it...
