Hi,

This was a leftover piece of spalted Maple that was a cool leftover piece.

I was glad the knot/hole did not rip out. The bottom is a piece of walnut in a groove.

I like the way the vertices grain came out.

Merry Christmas

That’s a pretty one – keeping the knot makes for a striking box.

spalted is nice, knot is priceless – top is cherry ?

This is another beautiful box. Congratulations, Ziggman, it’s very nicely done and I like it’s character.
