I designed and turned this box around 4 centre lines, 3 centre lines 30mm away from the central centre (120 degrees between them). The three corners and the lid are mahogany. The rest of the wall is tassie oak and the handle is ebony.
I had some idea about this kind of turning but this box was my first attempt and I have successfully done it well. Observe the three corner lines, from top to bottom, they came exactly on the joining lines of the first, third and fifth levels, which means perfect measuring and perfect centre locations. Segmentation in a project like this adds bigger challenges than a one piece project.
I’m realy happy with the outcome.
180mm high including the handle.
