Lidded Box

The first picture is of a pine turned lidded box. I like the grain of this pine wood. Second picture is of this box with the lid off. This turning is very thin except the lid. The third picture is of the box and a walnut hf turned from a 4 quarter piece of walnut. The form is one " high and six " across and the hole is 11/2" across. This turning is thin also but I never miked it out though. I hollowed this out using my little termite and it went through this walnut like you wouldn't believe and the inside finish was superb.

That is very nice stuff Mitch. I didnt know anyone turned pine. Pine is my favorite wood to work with, but am not a turner.

Handyman Thanks buddy. Pine has always been my favorite wood before I started turning a year and a half ago. I made a lot of furniture and only used hardwoods when a customer requested. Lot of guys don't think pine is good to turn even if shown something that is turned and looks good. I used to think that myself. I found out sharp tools and running at fastest safe speed for your turning is the secret to competing for nice turnings with anyone turning any other wood.( if that makes sense to you).Love this turning though, you should try it, might be surprised. Hope to hear from you again. Mitch

Very nice Mitch. The grain of the pine looks awesome and I love the other turning too.

jdixon Thanks John. I really like that southern pine because of the grain too. The walnut hf is a favorite of mine because it is just a tad more than an inch high and the opening is only inch and half round. Not much room to hollow out but I used my little termite tool and it came out perfectly clean and the whole turning is very thin. Your the first one to even mention this turning and I admit it is disappointing when no one mentions a turning you like. Mitch
