turned box design

Turned box design


I tend to work in batches and I have been making a batch of turned boxes for a few weeks now.

one of the designs I like to make is the shape shown here in this hybrid box

I was asked if I could keep the concave shape on the side of the lid but increase the width of the opening to make the box more practical for my customers storage needs.

This spalted beech box was my first attempt.

and then I went on to try tow more boxes in olivewood and camphor burr each time slightly altering the proportions.

I enjoyed exploring this design and will hopefully make more in the future.
