I was helping my neighbor cut down a maple tree that had been dead for a couple of years and saw the really beautiful spalt running through it. So I saved a few peices, milled it down to workable stock and put this box together. Instead of making a handle, I chamfered the entire edge of the bottom section where lid closes to give it a clean look. the finish is just boiled linseed oil. This one is for me. I like projects that have character and meaning and also serve a purpose. Also has been my “in-between projects” project. I really love spalted maple…It has a unique character.
