    Walnut box

    This is a small walnut box, 5.5" tall x 2" diameter, that I tried a couple new (for me) things on. Last week I stopped at a yard sale and bought a box of antler pieces and about a pound of turquoise for 5 bucks. So the finial is made from a very small deer antler and the bark pocket in the walnut has a little crushed turquoise glued into it with CA.

    Very nice, Curt. The antler and turquoise are both complimentary to the walnut, IMHO, and I like the natural edge at the base of the finial. Real pretty piece of walnut, too.

    Curt the box is a beauty. The turquoise really sets the thing off. I like how you placed the antler on the lid.
