Curved front natural edge box

This box is made from a felled small tree in our back yard, believed to be english walnut. I dried it myself for a few years, thinking the boards would be flat. Good luck prevailed and made the boards cuped and warped. The box is hand cut dovetails. Natural edges, finished with just wax. Lid is held in place by gravity, as is the bottom.

very cool – nice job – I got a boat load of ash, cherry and other stuff that would make nice boxes like that too.

Great box. Love the live edge and natural curve of the front.

Keep it up.
