Last year I dug a Crab Apple Stump out of my daughters back yard. I cut 6 small blanks out of it. Five are finished and I gave them to her for keepsakes. The box opens in the lower burned ring. They have a food safe Salad Bowl Finish.

Some wild looking crab apple John. Nice work. I like the way you capped the box with the burn ring, helps conceal it.

Nice looking bowls, Brought back a memory of the crab apple tree on the farm, It was old back when I was a kid. Still standing but worse for wear. This year they will have a family gathering to celebrate 125 years. Will have to have a look at that tree and see if a branch needs trimmed. Also a mulberry tree of about the same vintage.
