A camphor box i made with my new jet 1642 lathe :) i absolutely love the lathe!!!
I got the wood from a craigslist posting, when i got there, most of the good stuff was gone buut the guy was very nice and he liked the fact i was a kid so he gave me a whole bunch of wood. So now i have some live oak, a huge piece of rosewood, three more huge pieces of camphor, and a bit of monkey pod.
This box was sanded to 400, and then coated with beeswax because it was still wet. The lid fits nice and tight.
Please post any comments or critiques as i am still learning.
