Woodturning – Acacia Lidded Box

Acacia Lidded Box
In this video I turned a lidded box on the lathe. I started out with a 6″ by 5 1/2″ of Acacia between centers. I trued it up with a roughing gouge and put a tenon on both ends. After that I parted the blank into two pieces one will be the lid and one the body of the box. I shaped the inside of the lid first, and then the body. With a parting tool I made a small grove and inlay-ed mother of pearl and viper green Opal. As a finish I used Doctors Walnut Oil.


Woodturning – Firewood Bowl

I turned a piece of firewood into a bowl, and painted it with metal reactive paint. This piece of firewood wasn’t the best for turning. It have several cracks and a few punky spots.
