This little jar was turned from mountain ash cut down in my yard. This particular tree showed mineral staining from when it was freshly cut, that is where the black comes from in the wood. I turned it from the center of branch which includes the pitch, so for the lid I turned an insert from a walnut root burr that I rescued back in 2016. Jar stands about 3 inches tall. Lid is a nice fiction fit.

The top matches perfectly. What is that cool looking metal/wood on the lid?

Ash really looks good finished. Nice shape and the insert in the lid looks great!
