    Cedar Lidded Box

    Here is a cedar lidded box I made for Nick Parker who will be ordained a priest in May. It will be his rosary box. I have known him since he was born and have worked with his dad for 25 yrs. They have been family friends for a long time. It is cedar and finished with lacquer. The cross was fun to turn.

    What a very special gift and awesome box!! At this stage of my experience I can't fathom how you turned the cross. I love the box itself and the wood really shines. Nice job.

    That's a great box Bernie, and I'm sure it'll mean even more to Fr. Nick knowing it was made by a long-time family friend.

    That is beautiful, Bernie. Like Joan, I also would like to know how you did the cross.

    Inspired Bernie, simply wonderful.

    I'm sure the good father is going to be tickled pink!

    Still got all your knuckles from turning that cross

    Wonderful work, thank for sharing!

    Very nice Bernie! I love to turn cedar. Jim Bliss is a pro turner and it's his favorite wood to green turn Christmas ornaments from.

    Thanks for all the kind comments. He is a very special person and a wonderful friend so wanted to do something special.

    Chris I love turning cedar. They just took a big one down at the golf course and I got most of it. The trunk near the ground is about 18" across and I got most of the trunk which was about 14' long. So should get some good turning out of it.
