this is a tinder box made from spalted oak. its an odd shaped piece that required three legs to level it out, the three legs are mahogany that are attached with maple pegs, the top rotates off to either side to reveal three compartments , that will hold a few piecies of jewelry of any small item of choice..this is new for me…makeing a small item…but health has caused me to spend less time in the shop..,but i enjoyed it..its inspired me to start focusing on smaller projects, that actualy bring me more satisfaction…thanks for looking..grizzman

Grizz,
This is truly a beautiful piece! The wood lends itself to the design perfectly.
Nice work… keep the small stuff coming!

Very cool Griz. Is that a mushroom growing on the top? Naw, couldn’t be, it really is a beaut though.

But it doesn’t rhyme LOL
Outstanding use of firewood.
I hope your health allows you to go to the shop occasionally and make more of the small stuff you obviously enjoy doing.

Very nice box. Love the live edges, inside and out.

Small projects can be a lot of fun. Since they usually get done quicker they are very satisfying. You can complete them in a single day or even just a few hours. Very enjoyable.

Keep up the great work. Hope to see more soon.
