This came from a cut-off after I took an 18” bowl blank from the log that I got from a tree trimmer in the Fall of 2009. It’s hard Maple, and I really didn’t know if it would work out because of how much it warped during drying.

I roughed it out so the lid and base fit together nicely, but I didn’t leave them together for drying. In December of 09 I stuffed the rough out in a grocery bag and put it up on a duct in the basement.

As it turned out I had plenty of wall thickness to round it out again.

I was going to put a finial on the top, but it just didn’t look right so I went with a stone usually used for wine bottle stoppers.

My sister-in-law loved it, I gave it as a birthday gift.

Really nice. It’s just begging me to touch it.

Nice one, Ham! I like using a stone for a knob. I gotta think on that. Thanks!

That’s a very nice clean turning and makes a beautiful box.
