    Time to get back at it.

    Haven't turned anything in a while so I decided to make a box today out of a piece fo Canary wood. Thanks to Mike Stafford and his class at the NC woodturning symposium last week. I know this isn't a mosque box like he did in the class but I picked up several handy bits of advice.

    Great looking box. Mike is a excellent box tuner.

    Glad to see you got some turning time, and from the looks of that box, it was time well spent.
