A three cornered lidded box

The January Challenge for the Orange County Wood Turner’s Club was to make a three cornered bowl.

This is one of the more terrifying things for a wood turner to try.

My bowl started off as three different 4X4X2 blocks of different types of hardwood that were glued together, cut in half and then rotated and glued back together again.

When you begin turning this you put the block into the head stock and tail stock of the lathe.


After creating a tenon on the bottom end of the bowl its is mounted into a 4 jaw chuck and the turning continues.

The next step was to make a lid for the box before cutting off the foot and finishing the box.
