I made this little ring box/finialed hollowform for my wife for Valentine’s Day. The base is Cherry burl, and the lid is Ebony and Cherry burl. The picture makes the finial look a little heavy and flat, but it is not (finial #6- three broke, and this one was turned three times before I got it right (I think)). Hollowed to a heavy 1/8”- it won’t survive a fall off the dresser!
It’s been sanded to 1000 grit, and buffed with white diamond. Finish is Carnuba Wax. Comments welcome.
I took another snapshot to highlight the two things that I wasn’t happy with- two minor blips in form. The finial fits in a golden rectangle with the rest of the box, so proportionately, it’s pretty much spot on. I think Joe’s comment about the proportion and looking heavy is warranted, but I think the issue is with the ebony rim sitting on the lip of the box. If I could do it over, I wouldn’t have a lip on the form.
Thanks for all of the comments.
