This is a simple turned box using Beech that I recycled from an old table leg,yet another find just round the corner from my flat.I find Beech to be a rather dull wood,I’m spoiled using exotics,so I decided to pep this up with some enamel paint.Its 60mm in diameter & 83mm tall.

inquiries welcome

What a quaint little piece, and I love how you recycled the wood. The black top looks like a natural wood from afar. These would make nice gifts, especially with a pair of your earrings. I imagine they would sell quite well.

Nice box and the paint spruces it up.
