Been turning for a few months now. It’s amazing how quickly you can learn when you have good mentors! This is one I’m giving away at our local woodturners club Christmas Party Santa exchange. Its made of Spalted maple, 100 year old black walnut, Tiger maple, and Bradford Pear. You might ask why is this listed as a “box” instead of a “bowl and lid”? Its the fit. You must pick it up and pull on the knob to seperate the top from the base. I cut a sweeping curve in the walnut with a bandsaw and glued in a 1/8” tiger maple strip to add contrast. I think I will try this again with 2 or more glued in maple strips per box top. Question: should I have not drilled completely through the lid for the knob tenon? All comments and criticisms appreciated.
