Small turned box with top top
Here is a fun project to make and behold. The picture shows three of these boxes made from sugar maple.
The top of each box is a spinning top. Hence the title: Box with a top top.
In the picture the box on the right is actually upside down with the top spinning on the bottom of the box. Hope that is clear??
In a (much) earlier post I described how I made the tops. Each top takes about five minutes to make to completion.
The box takes longer as it must be measured as it is turned. Every time that the lathe is stopped it takes time.
