Showing the turning of a box with a lid out of some poplar.

Maybe this will inspire someone to go out in the shop and make something!

Nice turning, but why go to the trouble of creating the nice double band around the bottom, then cutting it off?

This second post is a mistake, and I cannot delete it. Sorry

The wood was tearing out around the two bands and I decided to eliminate the top one and try and keep the bottom one, which I was able to do.

Thanks for the video! Looks like a very fun project. I know I’m inspired to go turn something now! :D
