The Perfect Proposal: A Rugged Adventure

Categories: Inspiration

Sorry, guys. The Perfect Proposal bar has just been raised by the most rugged nerd out there. He combined an outdoor adventure with some nerdy craftsmanship to create a Zelda-themed proposal that goes so far beyond making a fun reference to something the couple enjoys.

Not only did the soon-to-be groom build his ring from scratch, he made the box out of a tree his future wife cut down. To top it off, this was all done before he went down into a cave to pop the question to her. (Yeah, this proposal was that intense.)

The tree from before looking quite different thanks to the groom-to-be's incredible woodworking talent.

That's a lot of work for one little box.

And it looks like that work only just began. Creating the lid took some trial and error (and lots of wood filler).
