This small box is 3.25” wide by 2” tall. Arm-R-Seal finish. I rough turned the beech from a log about a year ago. The wood didn’t have a lot of figure or interesting color, so I decided to add a piece of copper to the top.
I’ve used copper like this before in the bottom of an ash bowl that I made. These are small cutoffs from a place called coloredcopper.com. I have a lot of additional small pieces that I plan to incorporate into a handful of other small projects.
Only tricky part is cutting a perfectly round piece out of the thin copper sheets.
