These were my first experience turning lidded boxes on the lathe. I made the one on the right first and the second photo shows what happens when you let the inside get to be bigger than the outside. It got scrapped, but I later ended up cleaning up the edges and gluing it back together and saving it. The one of the left was finished on the lathe by sanding with mineral oil/paste wax and the one on the right was finished off the lathe with Watco Danish Oil and buffed with the Beall Buff. These were made from branch wood from a Bradford Pear that broke apart in the neighborhood and that I dried in the attic after bandsaw cutting in half through the pith, and then three more times to make a bark free blank.
