After quite a few attempts I think I have produced a 2×2 winged box good enough to post. To much fiddling around with these little blighters so it is back to normal turning for me but has been a lot of fun.
Pic 2 shows the three different type of winged boxes
Pic 6 shows the results of many attempts. Advantage is if there is an accident with the wings is hopefully there are four wings left to play with.
I will post the other three in the next post.

Looks good. I have done many winged pieces and they are a challenge and fun. The results are great

Great job. What did you use to make the little indentations?

Brian, I use the dremel and a small metal burr, found the burr gives a better cut using the side. Time consuming but I prefer this to sanding the wings on the lathe, even these little buggers sting the fingers. G’day Pete. finally got the mini 2 and 2 now I can get a life. Your right Ron they are a challenge and fun to turn. Dave, I don’t think they will be mastered, well not by me. Thanks for the comments.
