This is my last turning for this week. I have tucked my lathe away into its spot for the next little while. This is the last walnut blank that I had ready and it turned into a little lidded jar. It is about 4.5 inches high and about 6 inches in diameter. One this piece, one my learnings was to try and turn a few beads (without catching the chisel and doing significant damage – which is what usually happens when I have attempted to turn a bead.) It is sanded down to 400 grit and has some walnut oil and beeswax for a finish. When I had completed the jar I dropped the lid as I was going down the stairs and it broke into four pieces. Back into the shop for an unplanned glue-up. You can notice the cracks in picture 2. In a few days I will start my next chair, which will be my interpretation of a Tanzanian Throne Chair. I am building it for an African relief organization’s charity auction.

Great looking candy jar. Interesting design. To bad about the broken lid, but it looks like it went back together pretty good.

-- You will never build it unless you try. The second one always turns out better.

Have your say...
