I am running out of wood!!!! So I hopped in the Willy’s and started looking. I found Sagebrush, Western Juniper, and Mountain Mahogany. A little mill work and presto I have wood again. Now what to build? I started cutting 2 days before Mothers day and here is the present I came up with as a present for Mom. The flower is Sagebrush, Box is western Juniper, and the edge of the lid is Mountain Mahogany.

dude, I want your life! How do you find time? Between work and family I rarely have time to breathe much less work wood! This is awesome by the way, it caught my eye quick!

Very creative! It’s great to see Mountain Mahogany being used for something other than firewood, though it does make a fine fire! Keep up the good work, Go Nevada!

Looks good. How long do you dry the sagebrush?

Great box. Rustic and refined at the same time.

Wonderful box! The first picture made me think it was a picture frame but then I realized it was the lid of the box. Nice keys in the corners and very creative use of the burl piece as a “flower.”

Keep up the great work!
