I think I am starting to get the hang of this turning thing…. This project might be my best work so far. Not perfect, I know…. nothing is, but definitely a move in the right direction. I’m very happy with this one, but my next will be better, I’m sure…....
This is a lidded box. I used Bob Hamilton's video, tutorial and turning techniques (thanks again Bob) to get me started and then went in my own direction. Nothing new here in the turning world… but new to me. Constructed from maple and purple heart. 7 1/2” in diameter, 4” high to top of lid, and then another 3” of finial. The finial gave me a lot of grieve, but I am getting better with a skew…...Still needs to be buffed, but that might have to wait until after Christmas, as I am pretty sure Santa is bringing me a buffing system.
Critiques welcome please…............ Thanks for looking.
