Easy-to-make Turned Box with Plug Lid
By Ian Salisbury

For: Beginner Turners


The aim of designing and making this box was to have a plug lid that would fit even if the wood expanded or contracted with changes in temperature or humidity. So often the conventional type of box lid sticks or get floppy as the ambient conditions change. The novel feature is the indigenous way of making the lid--from the wood inside the box blank, inverted to form the lid.
