Pear Lidded Box

Took a break today from rebuilding the kitchen to finish a little fun turning I was playing with. A lot of the Flowering Pear logs I got last summer are drying out nicely. The box has a textured band around it from some hand made tools I have been trying to make. Still in the trial and error mode. It stands about 4’’ tall and the same in diameter. Finished with satin lacquer. I still have a little work to do on the finish. All comments are welcome.

I like that Dave ,sort of reminds me of the honey pot in our kitchen when I was a child .
That textured band adds nicely to the look .

The textured band does add to the overall look of the box. Nice work Dave.

Hi Dave, That Pear Wood is absolutely stunning. Very nice turning and that textured band sets it off nicely.
Keep up the good work.

Regards,

Cliff. PS: Nearly forgot, the knob on the lid also puts a nice finish to the project.

Nice turning.
Pear wood was the first wood I tried turning some 40 years ago. I had a bunch that was cut for firewood and I needed something to practice on with my new lathe. Most fruit wood turns easily and gives great results.
