I purchased 16 of these offcuts and started making boxes. More pictures to come. These little boxes are perfect for holding my wife’s little knickknacks and jewelry. Finish is EEE cream and turner’s polish.

Awesome little boxes. Something on my bucket list.

May I ask what turning tools you used to accomplish this?

-- Measure, cut, curse, repeat.

I used a roughing gouge to round the cylinder, skew to smooth out the top and to cut a tenon. Then a parting tool to cut the piece into two, mounted the top, hollowed the inside with a bowl gouge and scrapers, then mounted the body again to hollow it out. Eventually I reverse mounted to cut off the tenons.

Have your say...
