I finally finished this pistachio dish. It was a cut off of a log in the burn pile in Az. I brought it home and had to fill many cracks but then it looked okay.
It is finished with Danish oil and a 3 stage buff.
The box was a time filler. I had these dowel centers from Harbor Freight and they came in this flimsy plastic wrap that I know would not stay together and I thought they needed a box. So, while the CA was setting up on the dish, I cut some scrap cherry wood and drilled the holes for the points and made a dovetailed lid for it. That lid might slip off so I put in a 10mm magnet on the lid and a steel slug in the bottom to hold it in place.
It is finished with clear matte spray .
