This has been a good week in the shop, i finished 3 projects and used a few different woods that i haven’t used before. This box is 13×5 1/2×4 1/2 . I started this one wanting to use curved piece of firewood without cutting out the curve. Everything was fine till I started to figure out a lid , because of time i went with lift off lids and not try to do a hinged one. The lids are Cypress also from a firewood pile , i liked working with it but i could not get very big pieces because of the splitting in the wood( I have another log i hope is better). I used an oak branch and some Manzanita root. I did some malachite inlay one the lid.
Please let know what you think about this one.
