This is a nice little box I turned out of an apple branch. I trimmed down an apple tree and had some decent pieces so I turned this box with it. I decided to leave the natural inclusions because I thought it added to the box. Sometimes natural flaws in wood can really add to the character of a piece.

As for the apple branch, it just goes to show you can’t throw anything out when your a lumberjock!

Very nice. I have a mulberry tree I cut down last year and saved the wood for some turning. Have not seen any one use this before. I guess i’ll find out when I try.

I had no idea that apple could be used like. It looks great, especially with all of the figuring. nice finish too.
