Here’s another hollow-form Mother’s Day project. I made this one for my mom. I saw a container like this in one of Raffan’s books. I really like how the grain is continuous across the form and onto the lid.
I recently received a new Rikon 18” bandsaw as a gift from some extremely generous people. (They know who they are…and I won’t say thank you anymore, I swear!) The machine is a beast compared to my Delta 14” and has allowed me to slice into some unusual wood that I have had sitting around for quite some time. The blank for this container came from a large section of Red Oak root and had all kinds of interesting things going on within it.
It stands approximately six inches tall and is about 2 ½ inches in diameter. The finish is lacquer. Love ya Mom!
