This is a gift for my daughter. It is made from Box Elder with some spalting in it. The lid and the high end piece were book matched but the spalting runs at such crazy angles, it did not match up at a real balanced pattern.
It comes with a pocket for a Bic lighter so she will always have a light for the incense.

It is finished with Deft lacquer.

that looks really nice, Jim. I like the choice of wood! That is also one very cool way to store a lighter!!

Beautiful work and like others have said very well sorted. I wonder how you hollowed out the area for the falling ashes.

Very nice. First time I’ve seen anything like it. The incense holders I know are vertical. Yours is more practical.
