Unusual Lidded Box *PIC*

Ron McKinley
>This one is made from Estoraque, a Peruvian wood in the cherry family. The lid gives that satisfying POP when you remove it and I think the shape looks O.K. Got the inside walls smooth and straight and really like this thing. So what's so unusual about it? It has no BOTTOM! Yep, when I reverse chucked it to work on the bottom I misjudged the thickness and turned it into a funnel!

All is not lost. Besides, this is expensive wood! I'm going to turn another bottom for it and try to blend it in with a decorative V-groove. Should I use the same type wood or a contrasting wood? Any suggestions appreciated. Thanks.....Ron
