Here's the other piece that came from the box elder burl Curt Fuller sent me. More of the story is here. It's about 5 3/4" across and 3 1/4" high. It has the same finish as the bowl...Formby's Tung Oil Finish buffed with tripoli and Renaissance wax.

It's different, but LOML likes it. Next time I have a similar piece I think I'll try to do a smooth top with a spiked collar. As I mentioned in another thread, doing so with this one would have left it shorter than I wanted. (I would have had more depth on this one if I wasn't such a chicken with the McNaughton rig. I just didn't want to risk messing up the mother bowl.)
