This was a fun attempt at my first lidded box or bowl. I call it The Three Bun Bell Box because it has three small turned bun feet and it reminds me of a bell that at one time would have resided on a hotel desk.
It is made of Ash and is about 4 1/2″ diameter at it’s base and sits about 3 1/2″ tall to the top of the knob. It is finished with EEE Cream and Shellawax.
Here are a couple of more photos showing different views:
This one shows the lid off and you can see the tenon for the lid. I would have liked this to have been a bit larger to make the lid seal tighter:
Here is a top-down view where you can see the inside of the box as well as the contrasting sap and heart wood color:
And here is a bottom view showing the bun feet and the inside of the lid:
And here is a side view where you can get a better look at the sloping sides as well as the contrasting sap and heart wood:
