A few weeks ago I posted Butterknot Box I. I still had some of the butternut board (with a another knot hole) left over; enough to make a smaller box.

Today I had my lathe set-up to do some turning for a chair project and was able to turn the final and finish this box.

The idea for this box came from a box that I saw posted on the FWW Readers Gallery titled Cave Box.

The box is made from 3/4” butternut with mitred joints and walnut splines. My turning skills are rudimentary, and the slightly chubby finial is also made from walnut. The box is 6” x 6” x 4” high not including the 3” high finial. It is finished with a number of coats of shellac and then waxed.

I think it looks cool. It’s not a defect, it’s character.
