Click on thumbnail for full size image

A Saturday session at Barb's Barn in December

Everything is ready for full house session on lidded boxes

With the club lathes and the lathes at the barn, we'll have 13 lathes running during class today

Jim Hilburger, always willing to lend a hand, helped with the workshop

Kurt Hertzog, the instructor for the workshop, sharpens tools before the class

Some of the example lidded boxes Kurt brought to use as examples

More of the example boxes

About ready to start and people getting seated

Barb covers a couple of quick housekeeping items and we're ready to start

Kurt reviews the days outline covering design, techniques, materials, and finishes

The first consideration is the ultimate use of the box

Is the desired lid fit a suction fit, snap fit, loose fit, or is it to be threaded?

The end use will decide if it should be capable of being opened with one hand or two, and how difficult

Kurt reviews some of the available information such the Raffan and Stott books

Everyone will have a 4 by 4 by 9 Mahogany turning block to start, compliments of Ed Jolls of Rockler

Kurt explains the advantage of end grain boxes regarding seasonal dimension changes

He explains why a minimal kerf cut is desired allowing for best grain match between top and bottom

As a quick aside, he shows how a couple of quick clamps can help with cutting round stock safely

This method can be used if you don't have a V block available

Back to lidded boxes, Kurt gets the demonstration of techniques used to make lidded boxes started
