My whimsical Project over the holidays. The second picture shows it on the lathe before completion. I thought it looked kinda like a space capsule so I made an antenna lid for it. Named the piece “Tranquility.” It’s made of maple, just a leftover chunk I had as a trim off a larger chunk. There is a bit of spalting as can be seen on the bottom. The hole is 1” dia. so that it can be filled with small change or rolled up bills.
The finish is sanding sealer and two coats of wipe-on Polyurethane. It was sanded down to 600 grit before and between finish coats.
I could pass it around and you guys could put your donations in it and send it back to me.
