This box was made from a maple tree that was split in two during a storm a couple years ago at my house. I salvaged this piece for a box the rest became firewood to heat the house. Its 5” tall and 3” in diameter. All i did was simply cut the lid off and drill it out with a 1 1/2” forstner bit.
I carved at it some with my pocket knife and drilled a hole to put a stainless pin in to make a pivot hinged lid. The finish is urethane on the outside and epoxy on the inside, I put the epoxy on the inside in hopes that would help it from drying out even more and splitting.
