I had a few small pieces of walnut I needed to make something out of. They were the last few pieces from a walnut tree that got struck by lightning 30 years ago. Grandpa cut it down, used the lumber to have his kitchen cabinets built. Those burned in January along with the house. So I had these few pieces that weren’t big enough to do anything with concerning cabinets that he gave me. Still had charcoal that I had to cut around to get to the wood. Built a few cutting boards and this. Kind of odd looking but there you go.

Nicely done. And you have a nice remembrance from a family tragedy. My parent’s home was destroyed by fire many years ago – they weren’t there at the time and all was lost. It would have been nice to have something, even a bit of wood, as a remembrance.

Very pretty little box. Looks a little like a gem stone the way the top is shaped.

-- Happy woodworking!
