This pod is turned from maple using the lost wood process. It measures approximately 7 inches long, 4 inches tall, and 5.5 iches wide. There are marbles in the hollow cavity so the pod rattles when picked up.

All comments and critques are welcomed and appreciated.

-- My favorite piece is my last one, my best piece is my next one.
