this is a black walnut jewelry box made from a stump
that was rejected by loggers because it had several barbed wires in it
that it grew around it required several chainsaw blades to harvest and several years to dry the stump was from southern wisconsin on my late father in laws dairy farm the box is designed and built around the top center burl while the boards were being pla
my wifes eye caught the angel in the light last pic had she not entered at that moment and that angle
i would have missed it the barbed wire strung in the 50s left a black staining and a burl in the wood
and so was used for the unique back piece

Love it when someone steps away from the rest of the pack a little. This one is truly unique and very beautiful. Awesome work.
