I was at this craft sale and saw this big barrel pot and thought I’d like to try to make a lidded barrel box this way. I found one last piece of spalted palo verde in my wood pile and it was only big enough to make this 3” dia x 2 1/2” high box. I turned the inside and left a shallow reverse spigot on the inside near top and the lid sits on the ridge. I turned the sides and sanded them and then painted it flat black. Then I turned the outside leaving the black bands to give the appearance of a barrel. The sides were not sanded after turning so I did not screw up the black paint. This is my first attempt and it is a straight sided barrel.
It is finished with clear matte finish.
