I had gotten this canister from Wayne Barton some time back and finally got around to completing it. This is made of basswood and I stained it with nutmeg and clear coated it with Deft satin spray lacquer.

Another nice piece, Roger. I’ve got a few of those items “laying around” that need carving. Your completed piece is a good reminder for me! Keep the chips coming!

Welll done Roger, a beautiful and superbly proportioned design. I’m sure that carving in the “round” is not as easy as you make it look..
