The top is basswood, with the remains of a walnut tenon left as a centerpiece.The base is American sycamore.The gills are walnut, and the box is tulipwood (I think?) .The base and the top have spiral accents, rotating opposite to each other. General Salad Bowl finish. 8” tall x 5 & 1/2” wide at the top.

The basswood top has a shimmer that seems to make the color change from light to dark as you rotate the piece in your hand.

This is very imaginative and well done Hairy. With your entry I wouldn’t even consider entering the competition. This looks like a winner to me. Well done.

Fantastic job. Great design and wood choices. The hidden box inside the cap is inovative. I would vote for this.

Keep it up.

It’s a little late, but I just saw this. What if we carved a catapillar to place on top. Maybe one smoking a pipe… Watch out Lewis Carroll. Here comes Hairy. Just sayin…
