I had a small Chunk of Wood left over from a previous project. Couldn’t Bear to throw it away. Hence this Little Lidded Box.
It is very Small…2 inches from Top to Bottom…2 1/2inches counting the Top Knot.
Diameter is 2 3/4 inches at the Top and 1 5/8 inches at the Bottom.

It is Finished with Finishing Cream/Wax applied with a Rag while Lathe is running.

Kind regards to all Lumber Jocks…....Cliff.

987Ron…..Thank you Ron. Much Appreciated…...Regards…...Cliff.

doubleDD…...Thank you Dave. It was a fun project. It was Turned on my Big Lathe, but I’m thinking maybe I should make more use of my Mini Lathe, there are always small bits of wood and much easier to turn Little Projects on the Mini Lathe…....Regards…...Cliff.

JIm Jakosh…...Thank you Jim. I’ll be in the Shop again Today all Day…Plenty of Shop Time These Days. Life Is Good!!
Wouldn’t it be great to meet Jimmy Clewes.!!!!!! He does incredible down to earth Demonstrations and actually explains things so clearly in a matter of fact way.
Regards…..Cliff.

Eric…... Thank you Eric…....Regards Cliff

robcastle…...Rob, Thank you very much. Yes I feel your pain. Just saw a News Break that the Lockdown may extend longer. Regards…...Cliff.
