Lidded Box in Cherry and Blackwood
I turned this lidded box on a lathe. The body is a beautiful piece of cherry burl with crushed turquoise inlay in the natural voids. The lid with a finial is in blackwood.
It is 2″ in diameter x 5½” high with the lid; the base without the lid is 4″ high.
The lidded box is an art form embraced by many wood turners. Each has at least one hollowed base and a lid. Sometimes, a box has multiple stacking bases. There are infinite variations in the design of the base and lid. It is a form that allows the artist to show their creativity and skill. It also is a great medium for showing the interesting characteristics of wood. Lidded boxes can be useful, but most often they are collected and displayed as objet d’art. They typically are small and relatively inexpensive making them fun to collect.
