    small lidded boxes

    Here are a couple of small lidded boxes, one is Spalted Maple with a Cedar accent ring approx 3" high, the other is Cedar with a Pewter Lid my wife found in a consignment shop, its approx 4.5 high. Both are finished with Mylands sanding sealer and friction polish.Any comments or suggestions are welcome.

    Welcome Larry. Those are beauties. I wish I could find some lids like the pewter. Well done on both. I like doing the lidded boxes with inlays. Lots of fun.

    Nice work, the maple box is very nice. Looking at the first picture I would have guessed the contrasting ring was part of the lid.

    Very nice, the ring looks great!

    Where did you get the pewter lid, I've not seen anything like that before.

    Cheers!

    Very nice work, Larry. I really like the pewter lid, too. I wish my wife found cool stuff like that for me.

    Cool boxes Larry, I want to make a few of those.... I plan to try to do threaded boxes, but may have to do a few with friction lids as well.... I a LOT of cedar to work with now.
