    Another box

    First time for a rounded lid. The insides are still a little boring but the outside finish is comming along. Those blems on the lower left of the outside pic is just wormy texture...no tear-out on this one. English walnut with Myland's.

    Nice job, Jim. I really like the domed top and the finish looks great. I agree with your assessment of the inside vs. the outside, but we all get a bit better with each piece we make. (Even some of the pieces that don't survive the ride make us better, assuming we live.)

    Very nice, especially like the dome top. Reminds me of my own

    Thank's guys...work is underway on a new one, but...
    What can you do to spiff up the inside? My gouge skills aren't up to snuff on the inside of these and I was thinking some kind of liner? Wasn't there a post about velvet dust/lint/powder something that could be used for a liner?
    Next year I'm off to Utah for a Craft Suppy 5-day in turning. 'til then

    Jim, I wouldn't go looking for a liner, just use these boxes to build your skills, and practice your sanding skills.

    I use a round side cutting scraper, box scraper, or radiused bowl scraper with good results.
