Thanks Don! That was the project we spent all day Saturday working on. He would demo a bit then we would do what he did, then the next bit and so on. It's a lidded box with ogee wings. Lots of fun and Jimmy makes it straightforward with his methods. Lots of draw/pull cuts with the wing of a side ground (long grind, Ellsworth grind, etc.) bowl gouge. Dimensions of the base are about 7" x7" x 2" thick, top is about 3" x 3" x 2" thick. Lots of fun and high RPM's-way more than usual for me but it became normal by the end of the day.
The mini hat was an exercise in turning thin and was challenging but fun-I could have gone a little thinner.
