Lace wood box 3” tall 2 1/2” wide 1 1/2” deep. Oil finish. Nothing special just trying out the technique to see how it would turn out. Thanks for looking.

Nice one , Lou. I really like that wood. So how did you make it? Turn it, section it and glue it back together??

Thanks Jim. I read an article in the AAW mag on the lost wood technique and tried it out. You resaw the wood you want to turn add a scrap piece in the middle of the two halves glue them together and turn it then section it and glue it back together.

The box looks great. The lost wood technique sounds very interesting. Another thing to add to my list. Thanks.
