Wood Plywood


It starts with something like this except with walnut strips for accent color. Then attach a temporary bottom and turn the inside and outside and make a bevel for the lid. Glue up a matching pie shaped lid and turn it to fit and attach it to the box. The hardest part was cutting the drawer fronts out using hand saws. I glu-laminated some curved inner drawer fronts and backs for extra strength.

I haven't signed it yet. I'm somewhat inconsistent about signing my work.

The predominate wood is eastern soft maple, walnut, apricot.

Yes, these segmented turnings are time consuming. When I was still making a living as a woodworker the time spent working on such things drove me nuts. Now that I'm retired, I'm grateful for projects like this to occupy my time.

If I had to sell this sort of thing it would be hard to re-coop even a minimum wage but they are fun to give as gifts and they are appreciated by the recipient.

Very cool. Do you have more pics of the build?
Sorry but no. I did not document this little project. I could give you an explanation if there is something in particular you would like to know about how it was constructed. This one would have been hard to do a build thread because i really didn't know how I was going to do it ahead of time, I just improvised and did it.
