Have been out of the shop for entire summer but decided to see if I still remembered the techniques. I purchased a new lathe in May and just used it for the first time. I made this lidded box in approximately 2 hours, I realize it is not a difficult project but I completed it in record time compared to what I have done to date. I am not sure of the wood but it is a light color and very defined grain. It did have a few small worm holes but nothing going through the box. This could be Ash. I live in a woods and have an abundance of ash trees of which all are pretty much dead from the Emerald Ash Borer. Just happened this past winter. What they do to the trees is absolutely unbeilevable. I am sick but nothing I can do. The finish on the box is EEE and Shelawax. San paper used was from 80 grit to 400.
