This is another older project from last year (I am still getting caught up with the posting).
I bought the Manzanita burl at a lumber store which specializes in hardwoods and exotic stuff. I bandsawed the sides and bottom square, cut the top off, and simply drilled out the inside with a forstner bit. A thin disk made from a scrap of Padauk is glued to the underside of the lid to keep it snuggly in place. A little epoxy was injected here and there to keep it from falling apart with all the cracks/voids. I gave it to my grandma and she keeps potpourri in it (since it allows the scent to escape). Oiled.
