Wood Turning

lidded boxes from 180 year old church timber

My 180 year old Church has decided to do some renovations, and I was part of the crew doing the work. In removing some sub-floor and preparing to add a new level to our altar, we cut several pieces of the original southern yellow pine joists. After watching your video on making an apple wood box, I took them and decided to try my hand at lidded boxes and have the church sell them as memorabilia. I should be able to make about 25. This was my first attempt at lidded boxes and I really enjoyed it.
