This is one that I did for myself. It was my second bandsaw box and I wanted to make a rustic looking matchstick holder for the mantle above the fireplace. It is from a maple tree that I fell(ed) in my back yard. Tried a new design and covered it in spray lacquer. Turned out pretty well, no matches have ever actually made it into the box, but it looks good up there.
