All you need is paint or stain, a decorative knob and a pair of fence post caps (1 flat and 1 raised). Yep, just plain old fence post caps. You can find them in the fencing department of your local hardware store and they look like this:  Wooden Fence Post Caps

Thanks to the flat cap’s stepped design, it fits nicely inside the raised cap to create a lid – like so:

    A great presentation box. Just right for a cherished piece of jewelry. A substantial box that spells quality.

  5. Hey would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with?
    I’m going to start my own blog in the near future but I’m
    having a tough time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design and style seems
    different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.
    P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!

    wearing them. Now wear something that draws attention to one of

    those features. o A looser roll will allow you a flatter scarf style.
