    Lidded Ash

    Turned Box. Measures 2-1/4" High X 3-1/4" Diameter.
    Turned using my 1/2" Spindle Gouge, Round Nosed Scraper
    and 1/8" Parting Tool.
    Finshed with 6 coats of Minwax Clear Satin Poly.

    As always comments and suggestions appreciated.
    Thanks for looking.

    Great box Les. Is that red felt in the bottom?
