This small box is approx 8cm tall and has an outside diameter of approx 6.8cms. The inner diameter is approx 6cm.
I turned this item using one piece of spalted beech so that the grain pattern continues through from the base to the lid.
The lid is a loose type and has had a small piece of purpleheart inlaid to provide a contrast to the beech.
Whenever you buy a wood turned item you know that it is unique as no piece of wood ever has exactly the same grain pattern.
The box is ideal for keeping rings safe or could be used as a pill box to hold tablets for the day.
Wood is a beautifully warm material and does react to atmospheric and temperature changes and can swell and shrink no matter how old it is. A small amount of wax (lip balm will do if you don't have anything else) applied every now and then and polished off will help
to keep it looking good for many years.
A great gift for any one who has rings or even earrings or someone who needs to take pills at regular times.
I have long had a love of wood ( I have been known to hug trees) the warmth of its colour and intricacies of the grain patterns found within it. If you look closely at wood even the plainest varieties have their own unique growth patterns.
Wood turning is one of my main interests I find it therapeutic and it brings me great joy and satisfaction to create something from a material that is so beautiful to look at and hold.
