Description of work

Although this looks like an egg, it fits the woodturning description of a "box" because it is hollow, and has a base and a lid. This one is made out of spalted beech, and is about the size of a large chocolate Easter egg. The egg cup is integral to the egg, as is the finial at the top.

The design is based on a photograph in the Woodturner magazine of a piece by Neil Farrar, who I do not know anything about, but thank you for the idea Neil.

The egg was made for a customer who wanted a special gift for her daughter's wedding day.
