  3. Seems like I am always tossing plastic containers with lids in the trash. I got to thinking I might be able to use the threaded part of the containers and the lids to make turned boxes with threaded lids. Well, it turns out I can. Here is some of the containers. I take a knife and roughly cut the lid and threads from the container. I always cut them with a down stroke with the knife for safety. It is one of those operations where one slip can mean disaster. After that I take a pair of tin snips and remove as much excess as possible to save time at the lathe. I m
  4. If you want to make a self-centering box lid, you can always add a liner to the bottom that is slightly higher than the bottom, then it will lock to top in place. There is another way Make a groove on the inside, about 1/2 way thru the sides. Assemble the box Cut off the top, just below the inside cut.

  7. Still have to bevel the edge of the lid to match the top. flush cut a few Walnut plugs, and then think about a bit of finish. Trying to decide which way to show off a couple knots in the lid. If I keep the knots low, there is a narrow filler strip up at the hinges....If I reverse this, and put the filler strip at the bottom Knots would almost be centered. Have the top, where the lid will hinge to, attached . 7 screws, to hold it in place, counter-bored and plugged with Walnut plugs. I have a plug cutter and made my own plugs. Waiting on the glue to cure out, before a chisel and
