On one of my wood expeditions with my kids I was cutting up a fallen Maple branch with my axe and started to haul them back to the house. My 4 year old son, said “Daddy, I have some wood for you!” and he had a rather small branch that I was going to leave on the ground… I actually told him that I didn’t need that one, that he could throw it on the ground. Well, he was upset and I told him, ok… you can bring it.
Well, long story short, I decided to turn a piece of it today, and I was amazed at the spalting coloration in this wood. For the amount of spalting it was actually very stable. This is a very small box, but it will hold a few rings. The finial handle on the top is from a piece of ebony I had laying around.
