    Cherry Burl Lidded Box

    Here is one of 7 cherry burl lidded boxes I turned. The other six were gifts to my 3 sisters and 3 sister-in-laws. They love them and the color. These were about 4" tall and 2 3/4" across. Finishes with one coat of antique oil and 3 coats of wipe on poly.


    By the way Pete Jordon sent me this burl. It was dry and turned well. I am sorry Pete it took me so long to get to it but boy was it worth it. All 7 boxes turned out with beautiful rich color. Thank you Pete for some wonderful wood. It is appreciated.

    That looks great.

    That is a great looking piece. I like the finish. I have one question, when you say poly, do you mean polyuritane?

    No George the wood was pretty dry and it hasn't moved any since turning. Most of my lidded boxes are done with kiln dryed wood.
