Turned box made from a glueup of Sapele, Ash, and Ziricote. 4” tall x 2” wide. Angled grain in the Ash so I turned a ring to fit the bottom to the top so only my 1/16” thin parting tool altered the grain match. When you look inside the box you can notice the inserted ring. Finish sanded to 400, Ultra Polish, then Friction polish.
