I posted a couple pictures of my finished box over in the gallery.

Thanks for hosting this Guy - it was a challenge (based on the smallness), and still fun - but reminded me why I gravitate toward larger pieces.  I may have overcomplicated as well by leaving a natural edge, but that was part of the challenge!  I confess to a minor violation of the size limit, as my piece is about 4.5 inches tall due to the natural edge (not counting the finial).

Whew finally got one finished. My challenge was to make a round fitted lid that only fits perfectly in one location on round box. Seen something similar done last year at a club demo, wasn't motivated to try it myself till this C&T. Not as easy to make as a conventional lidded box, some preplanning is definitely in order. Thankfully pieces are small, so failures disappear in the shaving pile quickly.  Cheesy

Mine is done, I'm waiting for the finish to dry so I can buff it before I take any pictures. I'll ship internationally.

Great submissions,
A caution for wood that has bark on it and intention to ship across an international border. That may be a problem at the customs desk. I would hate to see a work piece relegated to the border crossing sin bin.

Bert, et. al,
Is the customs/bark thing a problem when sending via postal service person-to-person? Do I need to withdraw my ability to ship outside the US?

I'm not sure Bill, it is probably a crap shoot with the scanning systems being used in the transportation and postal systems these days, especially with international.
I have heard that even inter-state transportation of some species of raw wood products can be at issue and some states are more restrictive than others. I just wanted to raise awareness to something I ran into in the past and to help limit future disappointments.

Ok, thanks Bert.  I recently shipped a couple items, one with bark edge, from California to Missouri without incident, but I don't think there would have been any customs involvement.  I'd rather not withdrawn my intent to ship outside the US.

I think the size of the package, and your declaration document stating finished craft item as a gift, will not raise any red flags. It should scan and not indicate any metals and be consistent density. The dog should not set upon it either unless you include some samples from legal states.

Although California is a "legal state", the only "samples" I would include might be a few pen blanks...   Cool

OK here we go just a few more days to get in on the C&T. 
Most who have originally signed on have posted their work and it all looks great. 

It's not to late to get in on this.
April first I'll get the names in the mixer.
