Please join me to see how I “Turn an Oval Box with a Sphere Lid”.

Ask questions live, in real time, just like you were right next to me. This is a Zoom meeting.

This project creates an oval box by laying out an oval pattern based on a rectangular block of wood. I will share the layout and turn on three center points to create the basic shape. A little non-turning work to finish up the shaping. Two chuck mounting points are utilized for creating the bottom and the hollowing. Finally, to add a bit of drama to the form a hook tool is used to create the sloped rim detail. Every box needs a lid and so we will turn a sphere which makes a perfect style of lid for this oval box. We will go through my between centers method of turning a sphere by eye using practice cuts and a methodology to get to a sphere shape.

Topic: Turn an Oval Box with a Sphere Lid
Time: Saturday April 30th, 2022 12:00 PM Central Time (US and Canada)
