this is my first real attempt at a nice small box and there’s a great story behind it. obviously there are more than a few flaws with the box but overall it looks ok. it is spalted beech and the wood comes from a huge beech tree that was taken down in my neighborhood. the homeowner was kind enough to give me and my friend both of the largest logs so we’re going to slab them up on sunday, or at least one of them anyway. so in a gesture of thanks i made her this small box and it will be a nice way for her to remember that big beautiful beech tree.
here’s some shots of the logs that she gave us. as you can tell i’m very happy and can’t wait to get some 3 and 4 inch slabs from these babies.
