    Spider Jewelry Box

    This is a jewelry box turned from African Mahogany with ebonized walnut legs. It's about 15" across the legs, 6.5" tall. More spindle turning and skew work than I want to do again for a while. Each leg is 3 sections, the neck is 2 sections. So that makes 32 pieces counting the boxes, lids, knobs, and legs.

    You continue to amaze me, I just finished a Birdhouse sorta like your big Birdhouse and now you turn a Spider Jewelry Box. I'm not even gonna try it too many spindles. A neat an unusual project .

    I can sure see how you got tired of spinning thing little legs
