A while back I talked about some Hickory that I got from the small mill not to far from me. I wanted to keep most of the natural edge that it had. The spalting, and the bark that is on the top. I had thought about turning it into a wall clock. As you can see it turned out to be a jewerly box. I always use the natural color. I don’t really like to use stain. It’s finished with just some wipe on Poly. The deviders are made from Mahgony. The natural edge just overhanges a bit so it can be opened. I decided to shape the inside of the sides of the box, to match the outside of the front of the box. Thanks for looking..

Very cool rustic box! I love it. The only thing I would add is a curved branch for a handle on the lid to finish the look. Mainerustic on L/J made an apple wood box (different than yours) but added the branch on the lid and it was fantastic!

Great piece of hickory – and I like the box and shape a lot. You’ve really displayed the natural beauty of the wood.

Nice work! I like how the spalting comes out. Almost like some cave dweller painting. RH

I love the natural look of the wood. I to like to try to use the edges when available.
