Cherry burl lidded box

Curt Fuller
>This is a lidded box/vessel from a piece of cherry burl. The whole thing is about 8" tall x 3.5", including the finial which is rosewood. This piece of burl is IMHO the prettiest piece of wood I've ever turned. And it smelled like my granddad's cherry pipe tobacco that I remember as a kid. It's finished with semi-gloss lacquer.
