To make it I used an electrical conduit connector, plexiglass, 22 gauge sheet metal, auto body filler, paint, and leather. After about 200,000 revolutions this is what turned out.
This video shows me turning body filler on the inside of the jewelry box.
Step 1: Cut the bottom out
Once it’s off, I’ll continue to shape the body with 40 grit sand paper.
Safety first: Wear a dust mask. Watch out for the metal shavings that come off. They’re very hot. Be careful and work within your experience.
