    Lidded Box

    Hi Guys,

    Here's a 6x4" lidded box that I turned recently, turned from Maple. The wood was very dry, so it was quite difficult to turn cleanly, and as it was large, it difficult to turn and sand the inside.

    Hi Gari.

    It's beatiful, I like it very much, BTW I didn't know that dry wood was more difficult to turn.

    Gari, a very fine lidded box. The decoration on the lid outside as well as on the inside gives more value to the whole.
    Great work!!

    Very nice work Gari! Nice, clean form, super thin walls and I like all of your detail work - both inside and out! Really nice work!
