This box was turned from a section of a Pawlonia log. The pith fell out as soon as the log dried, so I fashioned a couple of inserts to plug the holes and make the box/jar useful. The stainless steel ball is epoxied to the ebony insert on top. The box weighs almost nothing, which is remarkable for something that’s about 9 inches tall and a little stout. The wood is strong and very light. I’d never used this wood before. I’ve read that it is popular in Japanese woodwork.
