August, 2010—This was a piece of cut-off from a large bush I pruned last year. It is about 2-inches in diameter. I used the band saw to cut the top and bottom, and a drill press to hollow out the center, I left it natural and sprayed on some lacquer.

Wow! A Bush Box! Sorry I just had to say that…
Looks good! I just cut a piece from a firewood log and was wanted to do something with it. I guess I could try this. Thanks for sharing.
