The latest woodturning project has been round boxes, or lidded bowls, either name can be used.
I'm adding a finial to all of mine - then they can be used as ring holders! You can put things inside, and/or slip rings over the top of the pointy bit (the finial).
First one is Spanish Cedar with a Jarrah finial. It's tiny, only 1.5 inches across and 3 inches high with the finial.
This one is camphor laurel with foot and finial finished with a black stain.
Now that I had the process down pat, I concentrated more on the shapes. This one is Camphor Laurel again because I can get that easily. The finial is red cedar.
