Segmented container with lid
Mar 3rd, 2016 at 10:23am
 
This took awhile to finish.  Was working on 4 different projects simultaneously. On this piece I applied 12 coats of polyurethane and then wet sanded to 1200 grit.  Finish is glass smooth. I'll have to do this on future turnings.
Comments welcome.

Nicely done. 
Good choice of wood colors.

I like what you did here especially the two thin veneers (purpleheart?) sandwiching the feature ring.

I think if you moved the up a row and made rows of the feature ring half the thickness it would give the whole piece a lighter feel.

Your joints look spot on.

Is the lighter wood maple or holly?

I agree with Ron's post and I"ll add some of my own.
IMO the feature ring on the lid should more closely match that of the one on the vessel, the thin veneers you used on the vessel could/should be incorporated into the lid. It would show that these were meant to go together, in your second photo with the lid off they don't necessarily look like they are a set.

I agree that top should have had the same veneer feature.   Made from poplar and purpleheart.  I find the hardest part of turning is designing the piece.
