this box was made using boxwood inserts to allow me to make a threaded joint- the tail’s of the box are hand carved after the turning has been finished.
finished with the u-beaut system 2 1/4” diameter x 6” long

How precious! It’s beautifully done. It could be a unique toothpick holder for the dining table. But in my house, the cats would use it as a toy!
