Lidded oak vessel

2016-01-08 15.14.56I fell behind a bit on my project a day because I didn’t have my camera out in the shop but here is yesterday’s project — a lidded vessel for lack of a better description. I had a wee bit of oddly shaped spalted oak sitting on my bench left over from an earlier project and wanted to use it up. I was able to get about a 5″ diameter out of it but only in one section so it screamed out loud to have a base added. The base and lid are both walnut which accents the colored oak very well. The spindle is maple with black ink. The whole piece is lacquered by brush and will get a good rub down before being sprayed — if it gets warm enough soon. I may flock the inside if I can find my flocking materials this weekend.
