    Cottonwood box

    This is another piece turned from old dried cottonwood. It's 5" diameter by 7.5" to the top of the handle. The handle is rosewood. I left a little of the natural edge on one side. Not sure I should have but it is what it is.

    Curt,

    That's really nice. I think i like the natural edge left in there. Nice looking handle/finial, too.

    Great piece, Curt! I like the inset lid and the contrast of the finial.
    I may be lost but I'm making good time!

    I have 10 bowl blanks (22''Dia)of cotton wood that are soaking wet, I tried to rough one out but found it too stringy. I was going to send it back to the bush where It came but I can see from what you made it is well worth the effort to let it dry.

    Curt,
    Great form and finish. The simple finial is outstanding. I've got to go against the grain here, I think the form and finish say that this is a "formal" piece and the natural edge seems out of place. I've made pieces where I left bark and even chain saw marks on the piece, but they had a more casual or rustic feel.
