This week I turned my first non-spindle item. A small wood container from some hard maple I got out of a Cincinnati subdivision. Not great but I learned a lot. 3-1/2 OD, 3-1/4 ID, 1-7/8 Tall, 1-5/8 Deep.

Well done Mike. Nice profile and interesting colors. Compliments on the bottom; sometimes neglected the first few times.

Awesome! I hope I can do something that nice when I venture down that rabbit hole in a few months...LOL.
Thanks, Gary. It wasn’t as bad as I thought it may be. You will do fine. The key for me was to understand some of the methods used and just pick one. The big thing for me was realizing I needed to turn the outside first and the inside next. From there it made sense.

Very very nice Mike! If you have any of that Maple left, I watching for a Lidded Box from your shop next.
Thanks, Chuck. My intent was to do a lidded box for this one. Then I realized I just didn’t have enough wood on the lathe to turn from a single piece so this is where I ended up, LOL.
