This was a dead tree we found in an area that has mass amounts of Ash, Oak, & Hophornbeam. We think it’s an Elm. But if it is, it would be the only one we have ever found in the area.

Either way it had some cool looking wood. I think I am slowly getting better at these. Complete with gfadvm /grizzman/patron hinges.

Thanks for looking

Good work Monty. I like the natural edge on the lid. It certainly looks like Elm to me.

Nice job on this. I like the grain of the wood and what you have done with it. You are getting better and better. Keep on keepin’ on!

I agree with the elm diagnosis. I am so impressed: you posted Shipwright and GP hinges on the same day!

Excellent box, I think you have the box making down to a science.
