well i came across another piece of firewood that i could see was probably going to reveal some beautiful wood on the inside, and i was not disappointed, and that is where the top of this little box came from. the top came from my firewood rescue and has a piece of padauk for the top handle , the box itself is walnut and i put a small trim piece of maple around the bottom, not a difficult job by no means, but the top is what makes this box, the book matched top is just as beautiful as some of it goes…at least it got m e all hot and bothered…lol….thank you for looking and thank you for your comments…grizzman

Great save Bob. Looks great. Like you said, that wood had something special in it.

You are the man Grizz when it comes to firewood rescue.
Must get cold around your house if you won’t let anyone burn any of it.

Nice save Grizz. I salvage a lot of firewood but never really thought about slabbing a cool edge off like you did. We should collaberate on one with your firewood and my mountain of 8” oak flooring scraps.

Grizz.. a very different approach for a box and it turned out beautifully. Nice job. I have to go scouting for more wood shortly.

I love wood saves – been scavenging a lot lately! Enjoying what we find inside random logs …

Nice job!

Nice reclaim and you obviously have an exceptional ‘feel’ for wood. And this project has pushed me over the edge. Im checking my firewood pile in the morning!!!

Would have been a real shame to see the flames eat this timber up Grizz, graet result all round, man you have an eye for this type of art :: )))
