Friend of mine at work brought me a chunk of water oak burl a couple months ago. It quit losing weight a couple weeks ago and I finished it up. Thinking about a wider, shallower top for it. I have another scrap piece of this burl that is big enough to make that. Tried a standard finial on this piece and didn't care for it.

I would have liked to make this one thinner, but a couple of inclusions were almost 1/4" deep. I didn't want to break through, or make the overall piece smaller.



This is my first attempt at a threaded lid. It will be my standard closure from now on. Takes a little more work, but worth it IMO. The male thread on the bottom of the ginger jar style top is a piece of scrap pecan; it takes threads very well. I drilled the top and cut a matching tenon on the threaded portion and glued it in place. I suppose vase oriented urns will need an insert in the mouth opening. The burl was fine for cutting threads.

OK, I turned a flatter, wider top for it. After a little handling, I decided it needed another couple coats of lacquer. So, here it is. I think this is all I'm going to do to this, unless it takes a tumble. /:-|

I like the glossy finish. How did you apply that?

VERY nice.
