Hello LJ’s

A while back I made the Stringbox. This box inspired me to make something similar but then an the lathe.
I had some solid maple and walnut in the shop and I also had some fineer in the some wood.

After some cutting on the bandsaw , i glued the fineer between the wood and let it dry for a night. After one more session on the bandsaw, one more glue-ing session it was ready for turning.

I glued the pieces to some waste-blocks and started turning.

I finished the pieces with a light coat of DanishOil.

Thanks for watching!!!

Excellent look and design, I like the contrasting colors.

So elegant, the curves seem to fload.

Well done. Great shape, and the string effect really adds to the piece.

I can see something in this technique in my future for sure…... thanks for showing and sharing.

Neat piece. Thanks for sharing your technique. I have some veneer and scraps that I think would be perfect for this.
