This piece of Olive has been in my possession for 5 years awaiting my imagination to do something with it
I filled and filled the cracks for the past years with CA glue and sanded and sanded to get it to level
Then decided on a pin hinge box of proportions to match the piece.
Finally complete..
Thanks for comments

It’s very unusual. It’s nice work and I like it.

That is a beautiful piece of wood and nice work on letting the wood dictate the work.

I never seen Olive wood that big. I like how you shaped the box to the lid.

Great looking box—I love the live edge! I also like the built-in finger lift!
