I got it in my head that i could create a turned box for my niece’s birthday. I glued up two blanks with a piece of plywood in between the two halves to add interest.
I went out and bought some plumbing supplies to make a face plate for my drill powered, wood turning lash-up.
And went to turning. While it was spinning it looked good, but when I stopped it to take a look, the ugly truth was revealed.
I’m not sure if the problem was the vibration of the drill, the cheap quality of my tools or the wood I used, reclaimed 2×4. In any case, it didn’t work, so I’m going to use the other blank to make a band saw box.
