Wood Turning

Segmented Wave Lidded Box

I turned this John Beaver inspired lidded box. I used the Miterset to make the segmented rings for the wave, and lid. I used the band saw to cut the arc which creates the wave after it’s turned on the lathe. I used Maple and Walnut for this project. The box is 6″ tall and 4″ in diameter.

    I am now working on making a similar “box”, with two differences. It seems to me the the two arcs that are used to cut the box and the octagonal piece should have the same radius, so that the “wave” has a constant thickness. Also, I plan to have the wave turned down to be flush with the surface of the box rather than above it. I think that a smooth surface will be more attractive. I would appreciate the comments of others on these ideas!
