Turned ripple ash treasure box

2nd one of the set, this one for Dest for her 9th birthday. Did a better job of getting the grain to line up on this one (must be learning something). But left the wood on the lathe too long between sessions and the two parts warped ever so slightly so the lid goes on suction fit beautifully if you align the grain. This one was the second attempt as the first one didn’t work out well, its shape lacked style so got scrapped (it’s now a pencil pot in the woodshed). I also messed up writing on the bottom and accidentaly wrote Ellie 🙂 I was tired and it was late. Quick bit of sanding and re writing and you’d never know.
