My entry for the 2018 box swap was a round, 12 segmented, walnut box. I started by making six 12 segmented glue ups from 6 walnut boards 5×21”. Two of the blanks were used for the top and bottom and were turned on a regular lathe. A rebate was cut into the bottom blank that the stacked rings for the body of the box sat in. Another blank was used for the top of the box but the rebate wasn’t cut into it until the body of the box was finish sanded so I knew the exact diameter.

Next I took the remaining 4 glue ups and cut the rings for the body of the box and the inserts. They were all cut at 90* on a RingMaster Lathe. The four rings for the body, along with the bottom were stacked up and glued together and were finished sanded on a lathe. To make the inserts I used two rings for the bottom insert and one ring for the top insert. The first picture shows the body and bottom of the box but the lid to the right was replaced with a segmented one for continuity.

I used the smallest ring I cut for the center and added dividers.

After the inserts that left cutting the rebate into the lid of the box so it fit nicely and turning a finial for the lid.

I used a gloss lacquer to finish the project.

This was another great looking box from the swap. The segmented and rounded top with the wild walnut grain really makes a statement. Lathe work is a skill I don’t have so I am always impressed when I see such good examples of what can be made on the lathe.

I really like this one. So many pieces and so much going on. I will be trying to make one similar. Segmented turning on the lathe and RingMaster is some fun. Only non-fun is sanding endgrain. Good work guy.
