I have just finished this little pot and am really quite pleased with it.  It only measures 2" by 2" and is probably the smallest pot that I have ever made.

To all that don't
 
Could I ask that people fill in some details when uploading their images.........it does help immensely. Its very easy to do and if you forget, you can still add information after you have uploaded them via 'Edit Photo's'

 
 
Thank you.

Hi guys,
 
The finish is 3 coats  of melamine laquer, it was then burnishing creamed to within an inch of it's life.

That is a lovely box and the finish is to die for. How does the finish stand up to handling

Hi Garfield, I'd agree with all of the above.  Great little box.  It's always amazes me what can be done with what often looks like firewood.
 
Cheers Dave

Hello Garfield, Add my name to the list of admirers of your yew box. Any chance of pics with it open?  Glorious finish, well done.    Cheers    Alan T.

Alan and Derek,
 
I have put a couple of pictures on the site with the box open.  The box seems to hold up well to handling, I have been handling it continuously since I completed it.
 
Garfield.
