Was reading through a turning book and saw an exercise for a lidded bow. I didn’t have any stock big enough to make one with their pattern but with what I had a container for my wife to put her rings in at night came to mind.

I added the coins to the picture to give an idea of size.

I think the wood is maple. Any ideas on what I should finish it with? I think I’ll glue some felt on the inside to protect the rings.

Perhaps a few coats of wipe on Poly.

Nice Job! I think turning the smaller things are harder than the larger ones.

Hey Rick. I would use multiple coats of thin shelac with flocking for the interior. Beautiful job! Make sure you post finished photos so we can see the end result.

is flocking a spray in covering? I have heard you mention it before but don’t recall how it is applied.
