Project Information

This lidded box was turned from abrosia maple. The lid threads on - threads are cut with a jig.

When I turned the lid (after threading it) it had a void in the wood, so I decided to inlay some white oak burl I had left over from another project. I left to large a gap around the burl, so I cut a groove and inlaid a black walnut accent ring around the burl.

Beautiful!
Love the form and the burl insert with the black walnut are two very innovative and attractive "fixes".
Well done and of course the threaded lid is a cool feature!

Perfect. The Big Brother to those awesome Acorns. Nice work.

Following the link for the threader, I'm better able to imagine the how, thanks for that.

I also see "wood stabilization" at the link, do you use some of that?

Great work! Sometimes a mistake can lead to a better result in the long run. Love the contrast by using the black walnut around the burl.
