A beautiful new version of my Signature Finial Box!
Burl wood for a vessel, hard wood for a Finial, and a jeweled crown make the perfect combination. It's a box fit for a queen!
Challenge yourself to a new level of fine detail!

We’ll make it with a threaded lid, using a hand-chased insert, or with a friction-fit lid.

The Finial can be ornate, or turned from one piece.

Make it small for a ring or jewel box, make it larger for a vessel or urn.

You will learn how to plan your project with good design and proportion,
the right materials,
and best display of the burl’s figure.

Don’t have a burl? Other materials also make a beautiful box!
