Here is a polar bear box made with ash and a ring of roasted birch not visible on the inside of the box. I textured the Roasted birch with my dremel a polar bear one side and paw prints on the other.

roasted birch is a real wood and its done by actually roasting it in the oven…it gives it a beautiful color…as you see it here…a friend of mine buys it in canada…google it and see what it says…

Nice work. I always wondered where they keep the polar bears ;-))
