This is a Curly Burl Maple box that I made 4 weeks ago. Finished with 75/25 tung oil and minerial spirits and sanded to 600g.
A friend need a present for his daughter.

Very nice piece. Makes me want to try some turned boxes.
Does the lid fit all the way down to meet the bottom section or is it designed with that space in the center.
I like the effect of the darkened area between. Looks like a band around it.
Very nice finish too. Makes that wood come alive.

I made the space like that on purpose. I watch a DVD by Allen Keys “Capsule Boxes”, and that was the way he made them.
I am practicing to make them bigger for the boxes I give to greiving parents.

Thank you
Arlin

Edit: I burned the rim by applying alittle extra force during buffing.

Very nice box Arlin. I like the choice of wood, what ever kind that is. It has nice grain patterns and color.

It is Curly Big Leaf Maple from the west coast and it is my favorite wood. That was my only piece and wish I had LOTS more.
I gave his box away for a charity auction along with several other pieces.

Thanks for the post
