Another pill box, this one a bit larger than the first. This one measures 1.75" across the base of the bottom and 1.75" high. The bottom is cherry; top is spalted maple.
I knew the spalted maple was a little soft on the corner I cut off to make this top, so I took it easy as I started turning into it. Sure enough, it got a little more pithy the more I turned. I grabbed my bottle of thin CA and started dousing it until it had soaked up a fair amount. When I started turning again, it felt much more solid, so I had no problem completing it.
A couple of coats of tung oil (real stuff) gave it a nice appearance. After letting that cure a couple of days, I hit it with several coats of rattle can lacquer.
