well this box i made because i had a little bowl that was no use nor ornament to anyone so i tried to give it a purpose in life hence the box. that maybe is like the bowl now just takes up more room. made from ash and birch on the inside. finished in bri-wax At least it kept me out of trouble for a couple of hours.

I like it. It has a rather Zen sort of feel to it. Well done.
