Turtle Octopus Ring Box

  • turned and carved solid cherry
  • black beads
  • linseed oil

This turtle octopus ring box commission was based on a netsukethat they found on the website https://ancientpoint.com

When the shell is pulled from the turtle, the receptacle for the engagement ring is revealed. The fit is made a hair loose in winter so that it doesn't lock up in summer (cherry moves quite a bit with humidity). Regardless, there is a push of air when closed and suction is created when pulling apart.

Custom Pricing
A project of complexity, that includes mechanical function and whole lot of carving starts at $3000. Please see our patronage page to learn more about the commission process.
