I took a lidded box class with the Dallas Area Woodturners this weekend. The procedure for turning a simple lidded box was presented then we all manned the clubs lathes and tried our hands.

For the class I made a very nice lidded funnel, somehow I missed measured by the amazing amount of 1/16th of an inch.

I went home and turned this. I was not going to make another funnel this time.

The wood is Mesquite while I am personally not crazy about the design, it does provide a few firsts, it is my first box with a “Pop” top (previously I had made a funnel with a tight fitting lid and a bunch of boxes where the lids fall off), I had not tried to do friction burned bands before either, the finish is EEE and Shelawax.

I may not save the piece but the pictures will serve for a starting point for future box compairisons.

Great looking box. Nice wood and design, don’t see a thing wrong with it.
