Just a couple of simple boxes with stone knobs. One is curly maple and the other is ambrosia maple. Both have cherry lids. They are about 4” square and 5” tall. The sides have a 3 degree taper starting about the middle and the top has a 5 degree bevel. I drilled a 1/8” hole in the stone with a “glass” drill bit and used CA glue to glue it to the 1/8” brass rod I put in the top. Another thing that is a little different is the grain orientation. The grain on the sides is vertical instead of horizontal. That way I didn’t have to use splines to reinforce the corners. Thanks for looking.
