Bits and pieces of wood always have an Aura of Mystique about them. Where have they come From? What kind of wood is it and more importantly to a LumberJock…..What can I make from it??? There are Two Large Plastic Boxes on Casters (small Wheels) in my shop, overflowing with what I call my “Bits and Pieces” and rattling through the Boxes I came up with the notion of some small lidded boxes. The largest Box is all from the one piece of Hard Wood and the other two small ones are a combination of Jacaranda and Hardwood some of which is staved and glued to make up a big enough blank to work from.
I had never attempted lidded boxes before and it was a bit Daunting. But thanks to youtube I found some great sites such the English Wood Turner Mike Waldt who has some very clear instructions and advice…Thank You Mike…
You will notice quite a few mistakes on my Boxes such as the not totally finished knobs which still has the turning marks from the Lathe. I am working on techniques to avoid this next time… more variety of Jaws for my Super Nova 2 Chuck would be a start. Any advice from, my LJ friends would certainly be appreciated also.
Happy Woodworking and Kind regards,
PS: The finish is only two coats of Danish Oil. Sorry there are no progress photos, I was getting excited at completing the project and just forgot to take photos.
