This is my first box. Made from a piece of oak wood from the pile for firewood (winter is coming soon). 2 coat lacquer finish.

Nice one Ovidiu. You really are getting the hang of that lathe. And you got your wood
in my favourite shop – the wood pile!

Murch, like you read my thoughts. It’s incredible what you can find in these “shops”. In addition they are terribly cheap enjoy that you managed to make something from nothing like a fire wood.

Thanks a lot guys.

Nice job on your first box. Nothing like the secrets of wood hidden in wood pile.

Nice work, and a very ambitious project to start with!

I like this very much! Nice proportions and, yes, ambitious for an early project to include a fitted lid! Bravo!
