Made from a large Chechen burl purchased at wood craft. Finished with shellac and polished all the way to 15k grit then waxed. I’m most pleased with the finish.

FANTASTIC! I worked in retail selling fine jewelry for 10 years, we ALWAYS had customers asking for fancier boxes than the white “leatherette” ones we had. They even offered to pay for better boxes but we had no clue as to where to find them. I’m sure this will become a family heirloom. Thanks for posting.

Stunning!

- Gary


thanks guys and Gary just to let you know, i stumbled upon my love of burl from you pen turners. Thanks for that. We had to wait for the wood to do what it wanted with every step of this project and then sand it flat and true. Hope it is done moving and will stay put.

Absolutely stunning, beautifully finished box.
Amazing how nature produces something so wonderful from what is basically an imperfection.
Have you noticed that the shadow cast by your little kid holding the Burl is Heart-Shaped ?
Quite apt given the nature of the gift, was it set up or pure chance ?

Great choice of timber given justice with a better finish.
