This box is from Sapele, Ash and Beech and measures 8 1/4" to the top of the finial and is 3 1/4" across.
Turned the main box from ash using my crown revolution tool to hollow. The base and lid are Sapele these where turned with my bowl gouge and finally the finial from beech was rough turned with the roughing gouge and shaped entirely with the 1/2" skew from then on.
All parts were sanded to 600 grit and sander sealer applied then buffed on the chestnut buffing system The brass rods where buffed using a metal buffing system similar to the chest nut one and finally dipped in a sealer and then waxed after fitting hopefully this will help prevent tarnishing.
The lid has a slight lip to help lift it from the main box.
Your thoughts on the design

Great bit of work Derek, and an excellent shape. You'll see my effort in a new thread posted 2 Aug. Unfortunately I had chosen an almost identical shape to do and was almost complete by the time I saw this thread. Yours looks far more refined I think.
