Reddit user curtisabrina pulled out all the stops when he wanted to give his girlfriend a ring. He built the entire thing from milling the wood to machining the metal parts. This is one of the most fascinating things I've ever seen. Someone should tell Tiffany and Co. about this fella.
First he designed everything
Then, using a CNC machine, he milled the wood and metal He even milled a custom key to trigger the opening mechanism.
There's even a custom made ring box!
I'm totally floored.
Curtisabrina said he spent over 200 hours on this project, 36 of that was machining. That's some serious dedication! I'd say it's well worth it. Now where can I get my own CNC machine...
