It looks like it will hold a fair amount of “New Experiences”!!
Great job. Cylindical & hollow, just what a container should be.
Congrats on a job well done & done well!!

Great first job! You’ll be making your own lathe tools and making lots of shavings before you know it. These lathes are addicting. Hey, what kind of wood is that? The grain looks very nice for this kind of box. I hope to turn a few boxes like yours, too. Great job. Keep up the good work.

Turned boxes have a charm all their own, and yours looks good. Hope to see more of them from you (and your new lathe).Roger

Really nice, especially for the first project, I don’t know how I did it but my first lathe project was more square than round. Your off to a great start can’t wait to see the next project.
