Turn one. Easy thing to do. Else, a Forstner bit of appropriate size for
the interior, hole saws for exterior. Start the hole saw with the center
bit proud of the saw, then retract and let it edge guide.
Sometimes it works out great . Old gal and I have 36 in the past already,
more to come.
Yes, the box is rarely used, maybe once when presenting it, but anything to
make the moment more special is worth it!
Could you elaborate just a little bit on the jigsaw peg bandsaw box? Sounds
like a good idea.
I don't have any pictures, but "Slide-apart ring"
is the general idea.
I've made "puzzle" boxes like this from 2" ivy or fruitwood where
there have been half-a-dozen pieces to slide out in sequence.
Making them is hard until you grok how to do it, then gets much
easier. The trick is to sketch them out completely, but to saw the
smallest peg first and then on to the largest lid.
If you saw the pegs on a taper and over-length, you can slide them
deeper in and compensate for the saw kerf thickness.
Guess it depends on how long you plan to keep her. :)
It's really sad to think that way. All of my old friends from high school
and college are divorced. Some twice.
Crazy me, I've been married for a tad less than 10 years now. Hell, we've
only gotten worked up enough to have a good knock down, drag-out fight two
or three times in all these years.
I think it's because we're both really, really lazy. Fighting is hard work,
and being mad consumes too much energy, so we rarely bother.
Good luck to you and the future Mrs. This thread has given me some ideas
for making up a nifty little box to house the expensive dongle *my* Mrs. is
expecting to get for out 10th. I'd better get busy on that. I need to
sell a kidney or something before January. :)

Same here with all my friends divorced, that's why I've waited soooo long
(I'm in my thirties now) and I've dated this gal for six years! I got
somewhat of a hint that there won't be a seventh without a ring on the
I'll be picking up my expensive dongle this Thursday. I'm not sure who will
be crying the most, her when she gets the ring, or me when I pay for it. ;)
