Beautiful boxes. I admire your ability to turn end grain. Nice geometric design on the lids.

Really nice boxes. You’ll have to do a tutorial on turning one.

These are both beautiful and unique. I love the lid pattern and the finish on these turnings. I agree with Jjohn about doing a blog on this. I think that would be interesting.

WOW! Those are some nice turnings. I have not tried end grain turning, but after seeing these, I think I may give it a try.

Is that an end grain block inlaid into the top? Looks great!

Ditto to the blog on making these. I have watched Richard Raffan’s video on turning end grain boxes, but I would love another take. Also, the tops are outstanding. Please show us how you did them. I would love to make one of these!

These are very nice Tom. They really stand out. I have done some stickwork in the past. I turned some cylinders about 4” in height and in different diameters. I then sliced these to about 1/16” thickness and used them as inlays in small turned boxes and som regular boxes. It was fun to do and well worth the time spent in cutting and gluing-up. A great way to use those small cut-offs that seem to accumulate so fast. Keep up the good work!
