    I'm working one some four cornered plates and now really appreciate your craft. It's quite a challenge to keep those sides the same and the corners crisp. Very nice choice of wood and excellent technique. Well done.

    maybe a dumb question, but what shape do you start with to get the finished 3 corner turning?

    Mike Walsh, To add to what Roger said (BTW, Rogers, that's a great looking piece !!)

    For a 3 cornered box, you hold the cube by the ends or apex. There are a few Youtube videos.

    I made one (it looks pathetic compared to Roger's) and I initially held it in the headstock by putting the point into the MT2 hole in the spindle. I held the other end with a live center with the point removed. So, it was held by friction. Then I took light cuts while creating a mortise or tenon. Then I reversed it and created another mortise or tenon and "let the chips fly"
