Third of a series of treen bottles, all from the same figured tiger maple turning blank.
Maple dyed with aniline water soluble powdered dyes (violet, ice blue and emerald green with a touch of NGR yellow dye at spots), clear coat is Mylands High-build friction polish.
Lid finial is Oregon walnut from Schroeder’s shop finished with CA and Mylands. Lid has a cork ring for a tight “pop” fit. Due to the chatoyance, color changes dramatically when moved from one viewing angle to another. Photography does not do justice to the variance.
Height 5.5” (lid with finial is 2”), approximately 2.325” wide. Internal diameter 2” (hollowed with a 2” Forstner bit), interior depth 3”.
Thanks for looking. Happy New Year!
