Yes, it’s a box. When you see both pictures it will become clear. The lid threads into the base on other side of the giant” negative space “rim, and holds it all together. Birdseye maple giant rim & spalted maple box. Hope this teases your brain & catches your eyes. It took about 10-11 hrs to make this.(before you ask!)It is a delicate concept and needs full attention , great care., and hideously sharp tools.

Is the box held in the center by threading the lid on? It’s a bit hard to tell from the picture. I really like this “negative space” design work. Looks incredibly challenging to do on a lathe.

Waaay cool! And impressive techniques that boggle the mind! I think this could be a signature piece for you.

I can only imagine how intense and impressive a mobile made of a half dozen of these would be like. It would give the likes of Alexander Calder stiff competition!

Hey CG, glad to see youup and at ‘em..yes, the box is threaded, and I turned it so the lid was a tad bigger than the base of the box..the lid & base coming together traps the rim.

Mornin’ mmh: good hear hear from you too..I think you are right about the signature pieces..I think the counter-rotating volutes (expanding pattern posted a few days ago) will be the ticket..the concensous of the turning world is that no one has seen it done before…soooo, I’m working on being a STAR!!!!

Hi Roper..then I bet you’d like a lidded bowl I posted a few days back..this is a strange one..I am now turning a globe-like bowl/box thing ..I might install it here and have this sit on the rim and roll.. options galore here..Or I’ll take the box out and put another smaller neg space turning in the middle..ideas, ideas, ideas…thanks for your comment
