Little walnut box

  Re: (...)
I have a bunch of walnut cut-offs, as well as some other small pieces, so I decided to make some little boxes. I've gotten pretty fast at them now, and they're a hit with the kids. :-)








I'm slow, but I do poor work.

Looks really nice and tastefully done too. Great work on how small it is too.

Thanks, everyone. I have tried several things for hollowing, but the fastest seems to be a round nosed scraper followed by a few passes with the round finishing cutter from my Sorby Hollowmaster. I mount the cutter on a different tool. I HATE the Hollowmaster.
