The editors were meeting recently to plan articles for future issues and it was decided that each of us would contribute to an article by sharing a favorite box we’d made or will make. I had just the candidate, a rectangular box I made several years ago from a spectacular piece of walnut I’d been saving for just the right project. By the time we’d concluded our discussions my contribution to the article got switched up because, as the turner in our group, I can contribute a turned, lidded box and that will add some nice variety to the article.

So, I wanted to share my walnut box with you here since you won’t find it in the magazine. As you can see, it’s simple enough. My objective with the project was to showcase the swirling, colorful walnut grain. And the best way to achieve this was to carefully resaw my single piece of air-dried 4/4 walnut that was only about 18″ long and maybe 6″ wide.
