Turning Archive 2005

>Green Cherry Burl with Mahogany lid. ~4" dia. 3.5" tall. I apologize for the poor picture quality. I'm concentrating more on my turning techniques than my photography.
This is the first turning that I gave a drink to after roughing. I let it take an alcohol bath for about 4 hours and then wrapped it in brown paper after I let the outside dry. I finished turned it and coated it with watco danish oil. This picture was taken immediately after a second coat of oil the second day. No cracks at that time.
Some slight cracks have appeared since after 4 days but nothing outrageous and easily repaired.
My wife doesn't like the lid but I do. I've seen similar in other turnings and think it fits well with the cherry.
What's your opinion?
