While waiting for some wood for my next project I thought I would get a little turning in so I produced this little box from an unknown piece of wood. It is finished with danish oil then buffed the three lines are there to disguise the joint between the lid and bottom, the lid has some texturing which is stained then gold wax is applied to highlight the texturing

Nice looking. You didn’t give the size but I always find it fun to turn small things like that. They often become hostess gifts when we are invited out. Much better than a bunch of flowers that wilt or wine that is consumed and forgotten.

Very nicely done Derek,
Even though the timber species is unknown, it’s certainly beautiful.

Great work – I like how you hid the lid joint within the ring.

I saw this on the UK site Derek, well done, it is a fairly plain piece of timber but you have ramped it up with the subtle decoration, :)
