Project Information

I saw this design and decided to give it a try; I glued up some scrap wood and turned it. The finished shape looked good so I stained it and covered it with three coats of polyurethane varnish. I plan to try turning one in purpleheart but have not found the time yet. Notice how the shape continues into the finial on the lid.

Good job of turning.
It appears you turned the "cone" and set it in a separate base. Nice idea. I will have to keep a note of that. I have turned "square" stuff but with all the people turning triangular and pentagram pieces lately I may have to branch out.
Waiting to see your purple heart piece.

I have seen a couple of these turnings, with the complementary knob…..and they are one of my favourites. Yours is no exception. Well done.
I tried one a couple of weeks ago, but never got it off the lathe….. bur I will be doing another try at one soon…....... You have given me inspiration.

Fantastic turning. Very nice shape and the added tiny one on the finial is a nice touch. Have done a couple of square ones so now I gues I will hafe to ad more shapes to my list.

Keep it up. Great use of scraps!

Very nice indeed. I've done several rounded base versions, which make nice gifts.
