This lidded Jar has a Maple top and African Blackwood lid. The spire was cut on Lathezilla and is one piece of blackwood. My mentor, Gorst Duplessis, perfected this method and is responsible for my trying this technique. The jar is 3” across and 5” high. There is an embellishment under the lid, and in the bottom or the piece where it is covered in 24K gold leaf. Finish is CA glue (20 coats) wet sanded and polished to a keen shine.

Pretty cool there cap’n, I don’t see the gold though. Maybe my eyes just aren’t picking it up. Great work.

interesting..I wish you’d taken more pictures. This one I THINK distorts the height and parts..another view would have been nice. Nice details.
