    walnut box

    I finished this yesterday. It is walnut. Three inches wide by four inches tall. Walnut is not my most favorite wood to turn but this piece was exceptionally dry and crumbly, gave me fits.
    Tip: do not leave the lid on the box until you are absolutely certain the finish is completely dry. DAMHIK

    I think I'm going to have to quit this forum at least until I get my current project done. I keep wanting to play with the lathe to so I can make some cool things rather than flat projects

    Great box Frank!!
    Aloha,

    Frank nice work on a great looking box. I don't believe you can beat walnut for turning IMHO. Also makes the shop smell good.

    Nice job, Frank. Good to see you're getting some time on the new lathe.

    Very utilitarian Frank, looks like it will be well used and appreciated for a long time

    Thanks.
    It's a rare day I don't turn some small project with it.
    It's the BIG stuff I need to develop my skills with. Got tons (literally) of wood laying around begging to be turned.

    Good Looking Box Frank If you don't need all that wood you could load it in a truck and bring it over, I'll help you get rid of it.
