This is a ponderosa pine cone inside of a shadow box made of ponderosa pine wood. The holes are where the mpb (mountain pine beetle) has burrowed through the wood. Once in a while instead of just blue wood there can also be this magenta-colored wood as well. I decided to seal this box with butcher block oil to bring out the colors. There is a keyhole in the back to aid in the hanging of it on a wall.

Another good one, Josh. The box gives definition directing the eye to the pine cone. Roman

How did you make the pine cone look so real. That must have taken forever to carve. ;)
