Two jewelry boxes. One is from knotty pine log with bark left on and the other is from an aspen log with bark removed.

I like them both a lot! Were both pieces of wood aged or did you do them raw?
Was it hard to do the one with the bark on it? The bark looks very thick! I think you must of had a difficult time keeping the bark all together. Not only that, but it looks smooth no cracks, and very clean!
NICE job! ~Suzanne

Thank you Suzanne. Both logs were found in the Mammoth woods in California aged by weather. I cut a section from the middle of the log and it was stable and dry. I have made several of these with the bark on for my granddaughters and so far the bark has stayed on. I sold one as a business card holder and it also held together.
