This is a small osage orange box I made for my wife Karrie about 20 years ago. It is about 6in x 4 in x 2 in.
Just liked the grain in it and this is what I saw to make out of that chunk of wood, used 1/2 in barrel hinges. You can see from pictures it has changed colors to the brown from its fresh cut yellow, finshed with poly sprayed on. Made it by band sawing the top off and hollowing out center with router.

This is a very interesting box shape and has aged to a beautiful color.
Very well done.

Nice chunk of wood cut to a geometrically pleasing shape. The angled cuts give interesting grain shifts. All round great idea and execution.

It just goes to show that something made with care and love is timeless, Lewis. Well done!
