I turned this box from a slightly spalted piece of tamarind. Its about 4” tall and 3” in diameter. I really liked the bugholes it this piece especially when I got done turning the bottom and seen I had cut right into the side of one, thats just a bonus in my opinion.

I put a gloss polyurethane finish on this which was alot more time consuming but I like the outcome. The lid has a suction fit and the bottom is slightly concave so it sits level. Thanks for viewing, Andy.
