Repetition can be boring but...

Repetition can be boring but....


I think that repetition is an important but often overlooked aspect of woodturning.

Allot of new woodturners  (and I was the same) will try to make lots of different things in single's/one off's and will often make a bowl in the morning then a box of whatever in the afternoon.

This is totally understandable but I believe that if you want to improve at any aspect of turning you need to work in batches.

I think that working in batches is important but yes it can be boring :-)

Here is a recent batch of boxes I made with internal lids, I will post them in the order that I made them.
