Turn a Lidded Box with an Integrated Bangle Bracelet with John Beaver August 13 - 14, 2022

about this workshop

In this class students will make a small lidded box with a wood bangle that will become the decorative element of the box. John will show students how to use both face grain and end grain turning tools as well as bowl gouges, spindle gouges, parting tools and round nose scrapers. Students will learn techniques for turning wooden boxes with fitted lids that allow a bangle to fit over the box. This clever box acts as both a storage container for jewelry and a unique way to hold a turned bangle bracelet around the outside. This is a fun project that involves many different skills.
