Just about a year ago, Marisa got me a box turning class at Woodcraft in Indianapolis. Now I’ve been turning for about 10 years now, but it’s all been self taught, and learning some new techniques from a pro would probably be a good thing. Well, it was.
The class was taught by a professional turner named Jim Dupler. I learned a lot of good information, and made this box in the two day class:
I believe he said the wood was elm, just some scraps he happend to have laying around.
It was a lot of fun making this box, but for whatever reason, I waited almost a whole year before trying my hand at another.
I had a small piece of black palm left over from another small turning project, so I thought I’d try another box. The block wasn’t big enough to make a lid also, so I just made the box.
It turned out pretty good.
So next, I had a small block of something, it was pinkish red.
I was able to make this one lidded.
Turned out pretty well.
