I had an old project sitting on bench– the piece called Fall Colors that just needed a little something different. Plus, what wasn’t in the original post is that the bottom was just a wee bit too thin and I got a hole in the bottom. It was too nice to toss so I ended up making a base which led to adding a new neck just to balance it out. The base and neck are both cherry and I turned a solid walnut lid. Now if you look through the top hole it is too dark to notice the small hole in the bottom plus the piece had a totally different look.
