This was an experiment. I was on deck to do a demo for our Tues Wood Guild and I chose to do an off center project. This started as a piece of box elder with 3 centers in each end. I rounded it on the center ones and then used each of the other centers that were 5/16” off in opposite directions from center. I had to measure it after each cut in order to take off an equal amount off each side to make it balanced. I was off a little because the thin web on one side is .062” thick and .082” on the other. It is hard to figure accurately with the whole thing tapered. I blended the intersection of the sides with a sander and then bored the inside on the center centers!
It is 3 1/4” x 3 3/4” x 5” high and finished with clear glaze spray.
