I was once told the best tool for the job is the one you have access to. This wisdom has served me very well. But I started to question it when I needed a box recently to put a present in for a friend of mine. I could have used any old box but ended up making one to make the gift extra perfect.
In honer of this gift box I thought my readers might like to see what goes into creating a 5 part lidded box on the lathe.
