Spalted Maple Turned Box with Ebony Finial
This is a piece of Spalted Maple from WoodWorkers Source. My wife went with me to the store to pick up the PurpleHeart for my “Making a Wood Bracelet With Scrappy” Class.
Here is the link. http://lumberjocks.com/scrappy/blog/25290
While there, she said I could get some turning blanks. After selecting 3 blanks, she claimed this one. Saying I had to make her something from it. Well this is the results.
5 1/4 diam X 3 1/4 tall box with a 3 inch tall finial. Turned to an ever 3/16 thick wall.
Spalted Maple box and lid, Ebony finial. Finished with several coats of Tung Oil/Varnish.
Please leave all comments and critiques. I am always trying to improve.
Thanks for looking.
