    Small segmented Box

    I am not much of a wood turner,Inever have much of a plan when I start a turning. I just look ariund at my wood supply and see what comes to mind.
    I found a few pieces of pine from a cabinet I had just finished,a piece of an old fence board that by the grain it was very old growth tree. Also some red cedar flooring and a small piece of maple and a small chunk of cocabola that Had been sitting around for ever. After a couple of days of cutting and glueing I came up with this small box for candy or nuts. I just like turning segmented pieces because of the pile of wooly looking shavings that are turned. Hardly any fine dust except for a little from sanding.Click image for larger version.

    If you make a mistake it was part of the original plan!

    I agree with Mohammad. That's a great candy/nut dish.
