Nice with great finish. Can we now assume you are a thread turning expert? What is the white top all about?

Hi kidbee, thanks for your thoughts .......
"A thread turning expert "...... I never said I was an expert ! far from it ........
I have been "practicing" for about 12 to 15 months , and I can tell you
It ain, t easy, but I ain, t no expert ......
The top Is"all about" a piece of corian , turned on an eccentric chuck ,
again it ain, t easy , from memory this was about lid no. 6 .......
Again thank you so much for your comments , much appreciated.:whatonearth:

Hi phil, thank you for your comments , the "white stuff " Is a kind of corian,
Can, t remember the name of it , but it, s what they make vanity unit/kitchen bench tops out of, turns very nicely , I think it will thread well too,


Good looking piee and well finished!!:2tsup::2tsup::2tsup:

Thank you artme, much appreciate your comments , :2tsup:

G'Day Smiife,

That is a very nice little box. The lid and feet lift it above "ordinary", well done. :2tsup:
