« Part 1: Lidded Box Practice Part 2 of Lidded Boxes series Part 3: Turning: Tenon and Outside Shaped »

I have three additional wood blocks that are sized so I can make lidded boxes. I also have four blocks that I can turn into small bowls. I began today to with the bowls.

I started the turning projects by using my epoxy bottle to glue on a screw chucks. The first block I started with I noticed that I had some movement. For safety reasons I took it off my lathe so I could attempt to anchor it better with my epoxy glue. I will check its strength tomorrow.

I have turned the second block to the point that I have made a tenon for later placing in my four jaw chuck. Before I do that i will work on the shape of the bottom and sides more. Dinner time arrived so I stopped my work for the day.

Right after this photo was taken I cut the tenon.
