This is my second attempt at a lidded box from a spalted beech blank i had. It’s approx 3.5” wide and 6” tall, i cant see myself using this timber again for a box like this. I found it very difficult to get a tight fitting joint as the wood is so fragile and flaky, it didn’t leave a very smooth service inside despite having freshly sharpened tools. Its finished in friction polish with an Iroko finial on top .
