I'm going to participate in Empty Bowls this year, and am cranking the bowls out.
But, I've been wanting to try making a lidded box the way I saw on a Bill van Gilder video: http://youtu.be/puaGVoRXHXE. Making pots with lids is not my forte, and any other way to make a pot with a well-fitting lid sounds pretty dandy to me. I'd tried this way once about a year ago, but it didn't quite work out. So, today I was determined.
I'd watched the video a few weeks ago, no problem! I can do that!!
BIG problem! The steps kinda got tangled up in my mind. I now have a dopey little bowl sans lid. 'sigh'
I came back into the house and re-watched the darned video. Ah HA! A couple of minor flaws in my process. So, I marched back outside and I "think" I got it right. It's still pretty wet, I'll post a pic tomorrow.
So, I then threw a couple of pitchers and some more bowls and called it a day.
