After experimenting using my Spiralling and texturing tool - I decided to produce a cylindrical lidded box - with ball finial.
The cylindrical box is fairly straight forward to produce. The spiralling is another matter - its almost like cutting a thread - similar to a nut and bolt.
You need to make several attempts increasing the cut each time until required depth is reached.
I then decided to cover the spiralling with spray Ebonising lacquer. Then abrade the surface and in this case I used a yellow spirt stain.
Thus achieving the result you see. Hope you like it - definitely unusual.
To finish off I turned a ball shape finial to finish off the lid - and ebonised that - also a few circular decorations on inner lid and outer box base.
When replacing lid - line up spirals so lid fits flush to box cylinder. There were a few dark features in the wood grain that show up through the spirals. Nicely hold a few pieces of jewellery or whatever you fancy.
