      The short answer is: yes. Turned wood boxes such as your example are in
      existence (at least from Roman times). Detailed information on them (and
      how to recreate using period tools) is in the book.

      Roman Domestic Wood by Paola Pugsley 209p, b/w illus, tbs (BAR S1118,
      2003) ISBN 1841713279

      Small turned boxes (suitable to hold needles) with caps are shown.. though
      one needle-case is of the more complex Vindolanda type with an internal
      shank to hold thread. These are in contrast with the simpler style of the
      presumed needle-case shown in Before the Mast (p328).
