« Part 13: Soft Maple Lidded Box Part 14 of Lidded Boxes series Part 15: Beall Buffing System for Finish Wax Coat »

I continued turning my African mahogany block today. I fitted the lid to its base. Then I created a small graduated curve on the outside of the box and smoothed the transition where the lid and base joined.

This wood really revealed itself when I rubbed on a thin coat of Zinsser seal coat, the sanding sealer.

Tomorrow I will remove that nub from the top of the lid sand the insides of all these lidded boxes. Lastly, I will turn the feet on all the lidded boxes and wood bowls. I also will mount my buffing wheels onto my lather or drill press and buff all the bowls and boxes. I could use the Beall buffing system on some of these bowls. I will see how that goes.

To mount the lids and the base with the tenons gone, I have a small clamping system that mounts to the Nova chuck I own. I have to be careful while using it since it does not firmly secure the bowls or boxes,
