Turned lid for the previously posted treen bottle. The walnut section is a bit too long, but I wanted it to firmly seal. Super miniature flame finial is in cherry, and is a friction fit pushed up from the bottom before gluing up the stopper section.
Aniline fabric dyes, NGR Toner, Mylands High Build Friction polish, Trewax Mahogany paste wax.

First class, Doug. The vessel was already nice, but this lid really takes it to the next level.

I’ve had the Treen mandrel set for years, your creativity is obviously far superior to mine. I had not thought of using the 2” set-up to make containers. Thanks to you, I will give it a go soon. Thanks Douglas, I always enjoy your projects.

It’s a very pleasing shape and I really like the finial. Everything fits together nicely; it doesn’t look like you did them separately. Thanks for sharing.

Hey Douglas/ See you just added to your endless variety! This is great looking. PS. You need to know that I plan to try to copy your Water Fall box from 2008. I was just looking at some of your older stuff comparing it to this last post and noticed it. Later,.......................;-J
