This is a little lidded urn I turned from the firewood pile in the park. The wood is Eucalyptus and there is a round turquoise cabochon epoxied in the lid. It is 2 1/4 diameter.
It is finished with shellawax.

A little lighter in colour, but looks a little like the little urn that contains the ‘Ashes’ for which England and Australia compete at cricket. (the ashes are of a bail – the bits that go on top of the stumps – that were incinerated after England’s lamentable performance against Australia at The Oval in 1882)

Jim,
this is really a very attractive piece, the stone on the top is a great touch. Oh yes, what a shame it would have been to burn this piece of wood…

Thanks for sharing!

Thank you all for all the nice comments. I just visited the wood pile and cut out only one more piece that was not cracked that may be something for the Miles’ ( the woodcutter) wife. I have to wait for the rain and wind to stop here in Az to start turning again….........Jim
