The couch box is the first project from Old Blue. I almost put more detail into it, but I liked the wood grain look too much.
I have ideas for more. This one is a gift for a little girl. It’s the right size for Barbie and friends. Maybe it will be a jewelry box when she grows up.
Roughly 4” x 4” x 8”. Figured maple , walnut and elm for the bottom. The seat, back, front and bottom pieces are cut on a 10 degree slant. 1/4” brass rod for the hinge pin. Shellac.
The turtle started on the lathe, finished with mostly hand tools and some dremel. It is a yet to be discovered species of mutant turtle. Cherry, with poly.
