Turning Using 4 Jaw Chuck

We use the piece of last skill builder for this project. First we shape the bottom of the wood in order to have the space necessary to grab with the 4 jaw chuck.

I wanted to make a little box for this project, here are the steps I took:

After securing the piece in the jaw chuck, I started marking the size of the top

After sanding and adding oil finish, we took the top of the piece and start working in the hole. In this part it took me some time finding out the most comfortable tool to work with. Which at the end was the small gouge chisel.
