Each piece is handturned by me from green wood. They are twice turned, the first time they are roughed out and
left to dry for up to 6 months.
Once the piece is dry they are taken back to the lathe, the shape is refined then multuiple coats of stain are applied to enhance the hidden figure. Up to 6 coats of lacquer are applied to give a long lasting durable finish. The lids are individually made and have a handcut 12tpi thread ensuring a secure closure.
