This piece of wood was originally slated to become a maple bowl. It seems that everytime it started turning in the lathe, something would go very wrong. Didn’t matter whether I put it on a drive cernter, a face plate, or some other custom contraption. This block has had as much airtime as many pro basketball players. After a couple alarming near-misses, the block got put on the shelf for awhile until a new fate could be determined for it. It didn’t want to be turned and I wasn’t about to press the issue any further. (Note: I have since replaced my spur drive). It seems that all friends and family want a bandsaw box, once they see one. I like making them well enough, but I’d like get some other requests on my “to-do” list. That being said, when the latest request for a box came to me, it seemed a perfect opportunity to take this obstinate block off the shelf and send it to a new home. Hopefully the finished product brings happier results than I have experienced with the raw material. Thanks for looking.
