Build your Box Turning skills!

The Tower Box, with it's curved sides
and a flush joint line, teaches us
planning and accuracy.

Dress up your Box with inlays of resin and
Opal, Mother of Pearl, or crushed stone.
I'll show you 3 different ways to do it.

Make your box simple and easy with straight sides, or challenge your skills with curved sides and a rounded top.

Make it with or without the inlays.

Learn strategies for getting the perfect lid fit, and jam chucking for a finished look.

You will learn:

- Planning a box with a complex shape.
- Different ways to hollow a deep box.
- Three ways to do resin and mineral inlay.
- Strategies and skills for the perfect lid fit.
- Use jam chucks for a fine finished look.
- Sanding and finishing techniques.
