Demo
Boxes by Joe Larese.

Joe will demonstrate how he turns a face grained box with a loose fitting lid. The process he uses was learned from Richard Raffan.

The box is sized to the large jaws of a four-jaw chuck. The bottom of the base is finished, then hollowed with expanding jaws. The lid interior is turned next, and a grove or step is turned to match the large jaws, allowing the exterior of the lid to be finished.

While large jaws simplify the reverse chucking of the 2 pieces, more conventional jam chucking can be used and will be discussed.

The resulting box is larger than most end-grain boxes, and the domed lid with contrasting finial knob makes it the perfect bracelet jewelry box.
