This has been a mission for a long time, never had the courage though till about a week ago. Yellow wood and imbuia. This will most probably be a once off because it is an impractical piece but I wanted to see if I could do it. The foot height is 175mm, the box height is 45mm and the lid/finial is 120mm vir n total height of 340mm. The box diameter is 96mm and the foot foot diameter 32mm. The top and bottom onion shape is the same size even though it looks different on the photo.

-- Create, create, create create. It makes my blood flow. And what better material to use than wood, you can repeat the same object 1000 times and none will look the same in natural form.

It may be impractical, but it sure looks great.
