£585.00
Material
English Beech with Olivewood lid

Size
250mm H x 180mm D

Capacity
3.4ltrs

This piece of English Beech had a distinct divide between two areas of early stage spalting so I decided
to emphasise it by carving a 'V' groove which I filled with Turquoise Holographic glitter in two part epoxy making a feature of it.  The Olivewood lid has a hand-cut 12 tpi thread ensuring a secure closure.

Each piece is hand turned 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 up to 6 coats of lacquer are applied to give a long lasting durable finish.
