Spiral Turned BoxComments (0)
A simple container with a twist
By Chris Pouncy
It’s not surprising that turners enjoy making wooden boxes just as much as people appreciate receiving them. This gem of a box can be used to package another gift, such as a piece of jewelry, or as a gift by itself. In addition, it’s easy to make, letting you transform a few special pieces of scrap into a prized possession.
You’ll find several turning lessons with this little box. First, you’ll learn how to hollow end grain and form a lid that fits the container’s base. You’ll also find a primer in using Sorby’s Texturing and Spiraling System, a unique turning tool that adds twists to bowls, hollow forms, and platters quickly and easily.
The system includes an additional texturing cutter that can create striations, whorls, orange peel, and still other textures, but here we’ll stick with spirals.
