    enother box

    Well i'll try this again.tryed to post a few ago and the system went hay wire. Hope it ain't trying to tell me something.
    This box is turned out of a piece of bradford pear root ball , and the base and final is cocobolo. the cocobolo came from Larry who got it from Dan so thanks to bouth of ya. If i had known how nice 10+ year old cocobolo turned i would of been using it a long time ago.
    Well the first pic is of the final still on the lathe and the next is the box still in the chuck.the next are just sitting there whating to put the final finish on.
    All comments welcome as always and thanks for all the help i've gotten here, and for putting up with me.
    Steve

    Excellant design and some wonderful turning, If I enjoyed inclusions in the work, I'd say I like it. BUT I have never been a fan of inclusions. All the same, the piece is finely designed and made.
