Another Turned Box

A box with a lid turned from maple (I think). Finished with BLO (boiled linseed oil) and beeswax. I have to remember that I don’t like this combination for a finish. It dulls quickly and some of the detail of the grain gets “mottled” from the oil. Still this was a fun project to make. I really like making lidded boxes for some reason. Anyway, thanks for looking!

Thanks guys!

Ken-I hope no tries to light it too! ha

James-I thought that too. One of the kids mentioned a sombrero. Another one metioned a circus tent. I am stuck between the pagoda and circus tent. I see both now. Funny how different people see different things in the same shape. Pretty cool actually!
