This little box is made from Apple that I actually cut myself and milled on a band saw and finally put through a planer. The lid handle is made from Osage Orange that came from my girlfriend’s parent’s woods. The lid is made from a solid piece of Maple that I had lying around. This was originally going to be sold on my Etsy Shop but whilst applying the several coats of Danish Oil, I fell in love with it and now it currently resides on my dresser as a catchall for junk. Picture three depicts all of the junk inside. Thanks for looking and God bless!

Very nice box and it makes it even better by wood you milled yourself. Great Job
