Matthew Chalker wanted to surprise his girlfriend with an awesome proposal, so he created an super-sweet mechanical iris aperture engagement ring box – she said yes – because who wouldn’t after that effort?!
“I made an engagement ring box for my photographer girlfriend”
“It opens and closes like the aperture on a camera”
“The completed box, side view.”
“A whole lot of hours went into this, but I’m pleased with the results.”
“She said ‘yes!'”
It took Matthew over sixty-hours to create this masterpiece, which is based on designs found on Instructables.com, he wrote that he would consider crafting another – if the price were right.
I would be happy to make and sell another, but there is a significant time and material investment however. To complete a full box we’d be looking at $2000-$3000 dollars. If you’re interested, send me your contact information and we can talk details!
