This I guess you might call it a box but it was made by the stave method. I had almost finished turning before I took any pictures. I forgot. Haa Haa.

The box section is maple stave’s glued together. Then glued the cylinder to the bottom and turned it. I glued some African mahogany and maple together and turned the lid. I then took some cedar and turned the knob. I then glued the knob to the lid.

Finished with water based polyurethane. Measures 6”d x 8”h.

Dewayne, your segmented turnings are turning out great. Cool top you made. I think your giving me the motivation I need to get started on one. If I stop collecting logs for a while I’ll find the time.

Thanks for the comments guys.

Dave when you do get started it will hook you just like turning if you aren’t careful. I found a site that showed how to set up the bowls on graph paper and get the measurements and it kinda opened it up for me. I would look at the diff bowls and wonder how they figured how to cut them out but it showed me how. I probably won’t be doing the intricate designs that some do but I foresee using diff woods and simple patterns for the time being.

At this point in time I don’t have a lot of different kinds of wood on hand so mine will be simple for now.

Hey Dewayne , your right. I think I’m hooked already on these and haven’t done one yet. And yes, I have been looking at different sites for charts, ideas, etc. As much as I like all kinds of woodworking I like the outdoors just as much. I stick with simple things in the summer and go for the challenges in the winter unless we need something important like a t.p. rack .haha Thanks for the tip, maybe it will be sooner than later.

Good luck with your endeavors.

I need to gather some more logs. I have a friend that clears land and he has told me I could get wood from where he is werking. Kinda getting real serious about my shop now so a lot going on. I’ve been getting prices for concrete and wood trying to decide weather to go with concrete floor or wood floor. Decisions, decisions, decisions. Haaa Haaa
