Another turned box in cherry. This one has feet. It’s about 3.5” high and 3” in diameter. Finished with a few coats of O.B.’s Shine Juice and then a few coats of a beeswax and maple oil blend. I don’t really like the proportions. I planned it to be taller but ran into some turning issues. Critiques welcome.
Cheers. Go Patriots.

Very nice Glen, I like the bead detail on the bottom. The finish looks great.

This looks really cool. I’d love some input on how you made the feet.

Thanks for sharing!
