Used for storage or as a table centerpiece, this set of containers is the perfect project to give as a gift or display in your home.
Turning wood on the lathe is a very addicting pastime. While there is certainly some woodturning involved in making this set of decorative canisters, you’ll also use several other techniques that will keep you moving around your shop. The canisters are really nothing more than 12-sided staved cylinders, where the parts are beveled and joined edge-to-edge. The open neck top is shaped on the lathe, and a piece of plywood serves as the bottom.

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
