Nice combination of grains. The finish sure brings them alive.

rings

Very nice good choice of woods If I may make a suggestion. It is about the chain it is to heavy for the box and has a shape that will be hard on the wood if it gets caught in the box when closed. Maybe a chain from a necklace would have a softer look as well as being easier on the wood. Would hate to such a nice piece get damaged. Wish you many years of happiness

Very nice, it appears that the top and bottom are from the same piece of wood, NICE TOUCH.....

Regarding the chain, not a major issue, but a smaller chain could be considered.

What is the measurements of the box?

Good job,

Yes the box was split, it was originally 4" tall, but i lowered it. It's 10.5 long x 6" wide x 2 1/2 tall.
