This project is a jewellery box for my daughter. The base is of Huon Pine from Tasmania, as is the top. Though the difference in color is because the lower piece spent many years at the bottom of a river. These trees are of the oldest on earth with many full grown up to a 1000 years old. Hence it is illegal to harvest any. So any you can get from fallen trees or limbs is strictly controlled by local government. Also quite expensive.
The middle section and the handle are from a Nth Australian grown Cedar called MacKay Cedar from the region where it is grown. Can give an allergic reaction when working so dust mask essential.
Hope you like it… by the way can anyone tell me why some of my pics come out upside down?

Very nice. Groovy upside-down photographs. They were taken in Australia for sure!
