Turned Canisters

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.
