Georgia Association of Woodturners demo – Oval Box

February 15 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm CST

I will be demonstrating turning an “Oval Box” for the members of the Georgia Association of Woodturners.

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, if time allows, I will turn a sphere which makes a perfect style of lid for this oval box. We will go through my method of between centers turning a sphere by eye using practice cuts and a methodology to get to a sphere shape.
