Fresh Timber Ideas

dare to imagine the perfect engagement ring box



The trend began in April 2018 with an enthusiastic request from a friend – an engagement ring box. The idea was just as much a thrill for us as it was for him!

He had done his due diligence in research and knew exactly what he wanted from us, coming equipped with sketches and online images as well as personal tweaks.

Each side of the circle was made out of two different woods (Rosewood and  Kiaat woods) to emphasize their different personalities. When the box was closed, both sides come together to make one whole – symbolic of their union to come.


Soon thereafter, we were commissioned by another excited and intrigued friend.

He and his girlfriend had a great sense of adventure and enjoyment of the series “The Walking Dead” – which certainly made heads turn when he asked us to re-create some semblance of “Lucille” to house the precious ring.

We turned this “bat-box” on the lathe from a piece of Red Ironbark wood and hollowed out the top for the placement of the ring


Lastly (for the time being), we received yet another magical request in the realm of engagement ring boxes


This box was a piece of Olive wood, turned on the lathe with hand-carved detail on the outside.

Love is in the air once again and swooping in with a delightful new engagement ring box.

This is a simple,  elegant  and contemporary design made from Walnut wood. It comes complete with magnets for steady closure and maximum attraction.

We would say that this ring box is practically shouting “YES” on behalf of your loved one, so what are you waiting for?


Did we mention personalization? We aren’t sure if there is a greater feeling than a loved one going the extra kilometre to make you feel special. 

We made this engagement ring box from a captivating piece of Walnut wood with a pop up hinge. In addition to this, Keiran decided that he wanted his partner’s initials laser engraved on the lid of the ring box for an extra personal and warming touch.
