This is a Lidded Box with a Knob,from a combination of Three Woods. The Base is from Australian Hard Wood, The Lid is New Guinea Rose Wood and the Knob is from a Neighbours Shrub which had a very close and hard grain….I wish I had a heap of logs of this wood. It is quite beautiful.

The Diameter of the Box is 4 inches and the Height from the Top of the Knob, to the Base is 4 1/8 inches.
It is finished with 4 coats of Shellac. Usually I would Wax it and hand buff with a soft cloth. But I was getting keen to put the project on LJs and couldn’t wait a few hours before Waxing.
There is a felt lining which I made a mess of. Some of the adhesive Spray glue went from my finger on to the felt when I pressed it into place….”What a Boofhead” still we live and learn.

In my haste I forgot to take pictures of the wood before preparing and turning.

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

Hi Cliff,
I too, like using unusual wood like bits off the neighbours shrub, you never know what it will turn out like.
Great job mate, Thanks for sharing.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

The combination of woods look cool Cliff. Nice job. Like Bob says you never know what you’ll get. I like the tiny grain in the guinea rose wood. I’ve had sticky fingers many time trying to get the felt inside. I’m learning with you.

BobWemm….Thank you Bob. Yes that is part of the fascination of working with wood. Thanks Mate.
Regards…...Cliff.

doubleDD. Thanks Dave. Yes the sticky fingers are a trap. But I think I have it figured out. I draw a circle with a Compass on light cardboard to fit the diameter of where the Felt is going. When it is the right size I stick the felt on the cardboard and trim to the size of the cardboard insert. Now comes the tricky bit….Spraying the back of the Cardboard and then dropping it in place without getting glue on the surface.
All Good Fun….

Regards…...Cliff.

Beautiful turning, and the lid fit is interesting being that it appears to lock in place. Nicely done.

The cardboard trick will be on my list to try out next time. Anything to make the final steps easier is appreciated.
Thanks Cliff.

Eric…..Thank you for your compliments Eric. Much appreciated. I still struggle a bit to get total seamless alignment of lid and Box. Sometimes I fluke it, perhaps its to do with accuracy of Tenon?

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

hairy….hairy, thanks for your compliments. Good on Ya Mate…”Your Bloods Worth Bottling”.
Regards….Cliff.

doubleDD….Dave, yes try the cardboard trick. it really works. But next time I will have at my fingertips a pair of tweezers and a long needle for retrieving if necessary.
Let me know how you go when you next line something with felt.
Regards…...Cliff.

Jim Jakosh….Thank you Jim. I think I could become addicted to making Lidded Boxes. They are fun and very satisfying to make.
Regards…...Cliff.

Another good looking lidded box. I haven’t tried anything with a lid to it yet. May have to try one when I get back into the swing of things. Excellent job !!! Mel
