    Beads of Courage box (HF?)

    This is Black Gum with an Osage lid and handle. The metal parts are brass and there are a couple of voids that are filled with inlace. It is 8" in diameter and 10" tall (to top of handle). The lid threads into the hollow form. Critiques and comments are welcome.

    If it had a spout it could be a tea pot. Very Nice.

    Nothing to critique here, Dennis. Beautifully done. The little footsies and the threaded lid are a wonderful addition. Great job for a great cause.

    Nothing to critique on this for sure! I read Vaughn's post and had to go back and see the feet. Very subtle, very nice. I am at a loss also as to where it is going. And like Don, a threaded spout would set that dude off!
