This is a lidded box that Jim Jakosh help me make. We had a great time doing this. I also have alot of sugar maple logs from our one and only tree in our yard that came down this past week.

Way to go, Rick. Glad to see you got it hollowed out okay in that depth. Next time I’ll bring over the small bowl gouge and the bedan!! Did that internal dovetail hold is okay?.......................Jim

Jim—when i sanded it down a little it became a little loose. But my wife is happy with it and so am I. Thank you for showing me how to do this.
