  1. Turned Off-Cut Box - Box Elder

    Woodturning often generates off-cuts, small scraps of wood that many would toss in the firewood pile. I enjoy finding uses for these pieces. I hate to throw them out, perhaps that's because of my Scotish heritage. This wood came from a large burled Box Elder tree that yielded many turned bowls.
  2. Turned Off-Cut Box - Birch Burl

    I generate a large number of off-cuts while wood turning. Most of them can be fashioned into small decorative items. This piece can from a large burled Birch tree. While not an example of true burl figure, this part of the burl displays a rich, warm golden brown colour characteristic of birch...
  3. 'Box Tops'

    I saw a version of these little turned boxes on FB and asked the maker if I could use the design. He pointed me to a master turner from Israel, one Eli Avisera, who willingly shared his design, which I thought was terrific. I altered it a little, since he made his with the long top handle used...
  4. Crab Apple Turned Box

    This is my first turned box. It is made from Crab Apple with Black Walnut "stem." 2 years ago we had a couple of tornados come through Western Massachusetts, which is a very rare occurence. My friend and co-worker was fortunate that his house was spared but he pretty much lost every tree on his...
  5. Lathe Box

    I was at Rockler a while back and ran across this issue of FWW and it had this really cool turned box so I thought I'd try to make something similar. The woods are different and it's a bit taller but otherwise it's fairly close. I just used what I had on hand: Walnut, Bocote, and Maple Burl. I...
  6. FIREWOOD BLOCK, sometimes it takes allot of trimming before you find a usable piece

    Cheap way to go, but the result can be priceless, The cuttings can be turned into heat energy though. Wanted to make a winged vase like I seen in a book, so started with a crotch section of the tree. Cut, cut and cut some more, not much left, change of plans. Just mount on the lathe and see...
  7. Turned Walnut/Cherry Box

    This is my latest turning the bowl is walnut the lid is cherry with a thin veneer of walnut in the center finished with Laquer, the last couple of pictures are the projects that ive done since I started turning a couple months ago and I have got the bug there are plenty of days that I cant wait...
  8. Turned Box

    Well I've been busy on the lathe lately and I decided to take another crack at my lathe turned box. My last one seemed to turn out ok, but after it sat for a few weeks I picked it up and tried to open it and it was stuck on. When the lid came off it did so with a loud pop and wouldn't go back...
  9. Footed Turned Box

    Another turned box in cherry. This one has feet. It's about 3.5" high and 3" in diameter. Finished with a few coats of O.B.'s Shine Juice and then a few coats of a beeswax and maple oil blend. I don't really like the proportions. I planned it to be taller but ran into some turning issues...
  10. Lidded turned box

    I made this turned box today. I was trying to accentuate the feet. It's designed to look somewhat like a rocket. It's made of walnut, about 5" tall and 2.5" in diameter. Finished on the lathe with several coats of O.B.'s Shine Juice and my beeswax and maple oil concoction. I posted a footed...

  12. Have you ever seen Texas Persimmon?

    I had several people commenting today on an older post asking about Texas Ebony. Another interesting wood in this area is called Texas Persimmon and it is VERY different from the traditional persimmon that I was used to seeing in the southeast where I grew up. These grow as multi-trunk large...
  13. Ash Urn

    This was made of : sapele for the top and bottom, cherry for the vessel section and fumed eucalyptus for the columns. I enjoy using the lathe for projects when I get a chance. For the top section of the piece I cut four pieces and then mounted them in pairs on the face plate to make the arches...
  14. first turned box

    This was the most complex project we did in the second part of a woodturning course. it is made from slightly spalted oak. far from being perfect but not too bad… finished with tung oil
  15. Small Lidded Boxes - Turning Projects

    As part of my ongoing self-guided lathe education (read constantly wrapping my knuckles on the spinning chuck and trying to pick errant shavings out of my ears), I tasked myself with creating lidded boxes with matching grain. Both boxes are made from the leftover walnut from this project, and...
  16. Turned Box

    Here is a small turned box with lid and decorative knob; approx 4" in diameter and 4.5" tall. Base is shaped from Koa, knob is Ziricote with vulcanized plastic spacer beneath. There was a large bark inclusion near the top of the box, after removal this was the shape left behind. Simple...
  17. More Turned Boxes

    Trying to get caught up with posted projects…I'm always behind…A few more turned boxes since they are so much fun to make! These 2 are turned from 3×3x6" stock; a difficult size to hollow! Left is Chinese Elm with a simple textured pattern on the lid. Right is Tamarind, I believe? This...
  18. My box runneth over

    A fellow on another forum posted a picture of a couple of Ringmaster bowls he did with a 'splash' from the bottom so I decided to see what that idea would look like as a drip rather than a splash. This is what I came up with. Red oak and walnut, approx. 9 1/2" dia. x 8 1/2" high. Comments and...
  19. Zebra Wood Turned Ring Box

    Small box turned ring box from zebra wood. I reversed the top so the grain doesnt perfectly match.
