This is another live edge walnut box, this time with box elder. roughly 4×8x4. I don’t measure much, it tends to get in the way for me. The holes in the wood are from a borer beetle that had its way with the tree.
As a side note I turned a large bowl from this same tree, and when I was applying the first coats of lacquer, hundreds of little black beetles came crawling out. Guess they didn’t like the fumes. Kind of made me wonder how much of the moisture on my face guard was really just bug guts.
