Here is a small turned box with lid and decorative knob; approx 4” in diameter and 4.5” tall.

Base is shaped from Koa, knob is Ziricote with vulcanized plastic spacer beneath.

There was a large bark inclusion near the top of the box, after removal this was the shape left behind.

Simple oil/wax for a finish.

Comments welcomed.

Looks great Terry. Seems like you have turned a lot of nice things on that first lathe. Any thoughts on upgrading to a bigger/fancier one…or will this one serve all your needs?

That is a really nice box, I’m saving it to try myself someday. How do you turn the inside of the lid after cutting it off? Soft/cole jaws?

Always a treat to see your work Terry. Wonderful shape and that wood is just crying out to be handled.

Thanks for the kind words, gang.

Shane, I’m ready for an upgrade! Have to wait…

Allen, a few ways to shape the inside of the lid. Yes to cole jaws. I usually grab that tenon sticking out of the top with pen jaws. Then a negative tenon on the inside of the lid helps turn the tip of the knob. I’ll try yo get more photos…have a few glued up for the next few days.
