    Pecan Lidded Container

    The wife had me busy most of the weekend but I found a little time this morning to turn this.

    I made a funnel out of the lid and had to fix it with a piece of mesquite. I never did get the shape of the top just the way I wanted it. Not really sure about the contrast between the two woods...what do y'all think?

    Finish is my new favorite General Outdoor Oil and beall buff.

    Excellent save, Shane. (Nice wood, too.) I think I'm with you on the contrast between the two woods...I think a more pronounced contrast might look better. The pecan and mesquite are relatively close to each other in color and darkness. Still, considering the circumstances, I think it came out nicely.
