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.
