Beads of Courage Box #1

Beads of Courage Box #1

(2017) Cherry with Canary Wood collar - BoC Box/Container.
5⅞”Ø x 5¾”h. Knurling tool decoration - Finished with Velvit Oil – buffed & waxed.
This is a really appealing piece. The proportions are good, the decoration is just the right scale, and the knurled texture looks great. I've been looking at texturing tools for a while now. What kind do you use? Would you recommend it?

Thanks, Kalia. I believe this was the smallest Wagner tool (1/4"?) used on its side. I also have a larger version (Ron Brown). I prefer the finer "tooth" version. I believe CSUSA also has a cheaper version (Artisan ?) - they all work.
