This is a project I have had in the shop for a while now that finally got done before the end of the year.
It is a box elder wood obelisk made to be an incense burner. It is 3 1/2” square and 7” tall. It has an integral wood hinge and brass locating pins that latch the top closed.
It has air holes in the bottom and vent holes in the top for positive circulation. The incense burns hot so I added brass inserts in the top and bottom to keep the hot cone away from the wood. The bottom insert lifts out with a ring turned in the top of the wall and it had a 1/8” locating pin to keep the 7 holes aligned with the air holes that go to the bottom. The 1/2” relief between the feet is to allow good air flow.
It is finished with clear matte spray.
I did a blog on the build process if you are interested: http://lumberjocks.com/Slovenian/blog/33495
