A little keepsake I made a few years back, when I was just a student in the workshop where I worked.
I had seen several video’s on YouTube on how to make boxes using a lathe and veneer.
Finding a small Wenge stick in the workshop inspired me te make this in combination with a small sheet of LignaFlex veneer. The LignaFlex looks like root-veneer, but actually it is just laminated beech with a paper backing.
For finish I gently rubbed some linseedoil on it with a cotton cloth.
My first project on a lathe! It worked out quite nice.
I have made some other stuff on the lathe, but I gave everything away and lost the photo’s, so I’m glad I can share this with you here.
Let me know what you think of it!
