    Mahogany Box

    A late Christmas gift for Mom; she and Dad will be here for a visit this weekend. This box is approx. 3.75" dia. and was proportioned using the golden ratio. Finished on the lathe with beeswax inside and out, and buffed the exterior with carnauba wax.

    Love the box, proportions and design. I especially like the little knob that you topped it off with. Too many elegant finials being used. Your knob is perfect for this application.

    Nice Job Mark, I like the design work and I agree the little knob on top is perfect for the shape of the box.

    Golden Ratio?

    Hi mark:

    My dad worked with Mahogany a lot. I love that piece. I do have one question. What is the Golden Ratio you mentioned. I am new to woodturning and would like to know how to set up a piece similar to yours in the right proportions.

    Thanks.
