My first turned box

I decided to try my hand at turned boxes. I have some 2.5” x 2.5” square oak shipping stock and I cut a 5” piece. I turned it round then added the rings. I used a forsner bit to hollow out the inside. It was a fun project. I used CA glue to finish with. A couple of first here.

The last picture was the actual first try but a crack developed and so I cut the other blank and turned it. I later filled the crack with CA glue and went ahead and turned it without a cap. Finished with Capt Eddie’s OB shine juice.

Both are made from oak

Looks good, but I hope you’re not wearing that new PM lathe out. ;-)

Since I got my new one I’m liking mine more and more. Just got to learn how to use the tools. I watch all the videos and I don’t hold mine nothing like they do. When I try they sometimes go crazy. I’m learning though that you just have to keep trying and it will come.
