I decided I wanted a box from each type of wood I sawed the logs for the lumber. This is the last of five. This one is Oklahoma elm. Dimensions:12×7x3 3/4”. No glue box joints. Live edges on top and hinge. Shipwright hinge. Finished with Deft SG rattle can lacquer. The last pic shows the whole ‘family’ of boxes (from left: mesquite, mulberry, elm, Arkansas cherry, and Kansas hedge). The tall one in the center of the mantle is not part of this ‘family’.
