    Lidded Box

    Here is a spalted maple lidded box I did off a idea I got from Ray Key. It is 2 3/4" across and 4" high with the finial. It is finished with Minwax Antique Oil and Lacquer then buffed. It has a nice suction fit on the lid.

    Very pretty. The finish looks really good.
    I've never had much luck putting lacquer over oil. How long did you let the oil cure before the lacquer top coat?

    Yes, that is a nice box, well done. Not easy, I have ruined a couple attempts. Vaughn, check out the web site for my turning club. The demo last month was on lidded boxes. You will have to scroll down a bit to find it.

    Steven I let the oil dry for at least 72 hrs. Mostly from one weekend to the next. Never seem to have a problem.

    Stu I do like my Nova DVR. A sweet machine to say the least.


    Thanks again everyone.

    That's a nice looking box Bernie. You came up with a good shape for the wood.

    Bernie,

    That's the kind of perfection I aspire to. Very, very nice. One day, I may try something like that too, but,,,not today.

    Aloha, Tony

    Thanks for the kind comments. Tony get Ray Key's DVD Turned Boxes, The Finial Box. He takes you thru step by step. Once you have did one it is extremely easy to do from there.
