    Osage Orange lidded box

    This is a shallow lidded box from Osage Orange with a Blackwood knob/finial. It's 5" x 3" plus the finial. I left a small bead on the lid to draw your eye away from the seam of the actual lid. (Did it fool anyone? ) The dark lines are weathered cracks that were already in the wood. The finial is a little heavy duty because the lid fits pretty tight and needs a little pull to get it off. Deft finish.

    Excellent job, Curt. Everything about it looks spot on to me. Great piece of wood, sweet form, nice finish...everything.

    And I like the "tight lid" excuse for the beefy finial. Very original.
