Two Tier Candy Dish

Two Tier Candy Dish

Sometimes I get the lathe bug. I just have to turn something. In this project I started with the staves glue up. I cut six scrap pieces on walnut and maple. They was about 1 1/2″ width and about 20″ long. I cut 30 degree on each edge to form a hexagon stave. Well lets jump into this project here are some pictures showing the glue up.

The stave glue up took some time this is why I did it first.
Now that all the glue ups are done a got the final dimensions. I was left with two square pieces and a stave hexagon. I cut the square pieces into a maximum size circle using the band saw. Now on to the lathe. Started rounding the stave first and I was lucky in to screwed right on the the lathe no adapter needed.
Over all the project turned out great. I’ve said it before and I’ll it again you just can’t beat Walnut and maple combination. The finished was applied. Wiped on butcher block oil and added three rubber feet to the bottom. A fun a easy project for the lathe. If I had a bigger lathe, I would have gone a pinch bigger with this project.
