Spalted Maple Lidded Box

Spalted-Maple-Lidded-Box

A good friend of mine gave me a block off spalted maple so I decided to turn a lidded box on my lathe. The block was 6 x 6 x 4 inches thick in size and the corner had a bad place that was too soft. I started buy cutting the block into a circle and then mounted it on the lathe. After turning both the bottom and the lid, I then turned the finial from a scrap piece of blackwood. after turning the finial and before parting the piece I made sure that I cut a tenon so that I could mount the finial to the lid.

This box measures 5 inches in diameter and 3-1/8 inches high, I think it turned out really nice!

Have a great week!
