‘Moorish’ Box


This little walnut box was inspired by the wonderful work of Richard Raffan.  I deliberately turned the piece with a tenon on the lid, as apposed to the usual tenon on the body, to see how it would look.  By experimenting we learn what works and what doesn’t… I’ll let you form your own opinion 😉




Video #22 – Off Centre Egg Plate, Part 1




This was the first time I experimented with using the Ruth Niles Off Centre jig on anything but bottle stoppers and jewellery pieces.  It was a fun piece to turn and led to a few other pieces in the future.  The wood was Walnut and finished with a food safe oil.


Part two can be found here.
