Here is a lidded vessel.
Made from olive and manzanita burl.
Measures 5.25”w x 6.5”h .
I tied to keep the balance between the elegant and rustic/natural on this piece.
This will be a wedding gift for a friend. ..

That’s really quite striking and unique. Some amazing grain in that wood. I’m betting that turning the lid and base was quite tricky.

Thanks burlybob!
It was, the lid and base came from the same piece. When I turned the recess for my chuck I lost a chunk of wood somewhere. .. when I put it on my chuck I made sure not to over tighten and I put tape around that void (just in case ). Buy it worked out, and I very pleased with the finished product

Besides shape is extraordinary, you’ve done it with very interesting types of woods, which look realy nice.

Great work!

Knowing how difficult that was to turn makes it all the more impressive.

Thanks for sharing this.

Awesome job, I’m being mentored by a local woodturner presently. Love turning thus far. Boy there is alot to learn and alot to go wrong lol. I’m a big fan of live bowls like this showing off the flaws, knots holes ect. (Its pure character to me ). The finial looks great as well.
