Woodturners of North Texas – Oval Box Demo
May 25, 2023 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm CDT
This in person demonstration is for attendees at the Woodturners of North Texas club 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 method of between centers turning a sphere by eye using practice cuts and a methodology to get to a sphere shape.
