Too many - but not nearly enough
I just really like the colour and finish of the wood - very reminiscent of Porphyry, the worm holes tend to accentuate that image.

Apologies if you are a wood purist, Pargyle, but that would have looked even more stunning if the holes had been filled with coloured resin before turning.

And I agree the finial is mismatched. A wonderful chunky box like that should have a good chunky lid handle.

Actually I was thinking about filling the woodworm holes with brass impregnated resin but I quite liked the rustic look and so I didn't bother....perhaps next time !
