I've been wanting to turn a lidded vessel for a while. I have been turning snowmen lately, so I decided to turn my first true lidded vessel and put a snowman on its top. This was a lot of fun and I like the way it turned out.

The vessel is made from American Elm, which I acquired from a tree that my neighbor cut down a while back. I finished it with Walnut Oil. The snowman is made of Figured Western Maple. I think both had some really nice grain and coloring. It is 6.5" tall and 4" in diameter at its larges point. 

I've been turning since late 2019.
