Pickelhaube Box, with a claro walnut bowl, a cocobolo lid and an ebony finial.
A Pickelhaube is the spiked helmet worn by the German army in WWI. A friend thought that was what it looked like.
It is about the size of a teacup.
The bowl has a neat bark inclusion about the size of a quarter.
Finish on the walnut bowl is wipe on poly. I could not get the poly to dry on the cocobolo so the finish is just wax.
The walnut was leftover from my previous project, “Gunstock Bowl”. http://lumberjocks.com/projects/79180
