This simple art deco style box was the start point of a series of boxes which I call Orbital Arc’s, this series of boxes growing in complexity started with this simple shape. Looking at where and how to start this style of box, explaining the making of templates, answering the puzzle of how to mount the work piece upon the lathe, explaining the methods used on how to measure and layout the profile shape, the selections of basic tools used to shape materials. An explanation of the assembly process and overall construction, which go into making this simple looking box.
