Alan Lacer's article on box making

John Lucas
>Did anyone see the article on box making. I think it was in American Woodworker. He must be selling tools. :) He uses at least 7 tools to turn a simple lidded box. I use 2 most of the time but sometimes as many as 5. I use a spindle gouge and parting tool. Sometimes I'll use a rough out gouge to rough it out and will use a skew on some to get the outside shape better. I have a screwdriver I ground as a scraper for fine tuning the fit on some lids.
