The main body of these small boxes share one thing in common they are made from a single piece of wood which is divided & then hollowed. This allows nearly perfect grain alignment between base & lid. Two of the boxes have an inlay in the lid which is made from 6 pieces of Meranti Plywood & six pieces of solid stock, it is not just a veneer inlay. The box with the picture frame in the lid was designed with a special purpose in mind. The first three I made were given to family members as a container for their newborn's hospital ID bracelet, with the picture frame being a receptacle for the first photo. The box in the lower left hand corner measures 2-3/4" in diam by 1-1/2" high. The box bodies are ash or maple.

A collection of small bowls/trays
My wife finds the trays particularly useful as a receptacle for rings & earrings.
The laminations on the three items in the foreground are done after the piece is rough turned. This process is slightly more difficult but allows for better re-centering on the lathe.
The small tray with the red centre measures approximately 4-1/4" diam. by 1-1/4" high

A collection of small laminated bowls approx 6" in diameter. If you want further details e-mail me with the page number & bowl position in the picture.

 

My Mushroom Boxes. These little boxes live up to their name. They look like a mushroom. Don't take mushroom on your shelf & there is not mushroom inside. No not typos. Just my weird sense of humour! Made of either Maple, Birch or ash (or a combination )
