Small BS box made outta sugar maple wood from a tree damaged in last October’s freak snow storm here. Wood is still some-what green and has some nice interesting cracks run all through it. I have a LOT of this wood in a barn just waiting on it to cure. Thanks for looking

Hi Jay, That’s COOL! I love the design with bark in tact lid. I would put my valuables in there and hide it in my firewood pile. Never mind, my wife would grab it and throw it in the fireplace…........, maybe I will just put stuff of hers in there, LOL
