I have been a lurker and a learner for quite some time now, and thought I might join in the fun.
I’m admittedly not much of a woodworker; more of a carver with hand tools, but I frequently build my carvings into benches, boxes, and other simple constructions.
This is a 6-sided box made out of pine with a boiled linseed / paste wax finish.
The design carved into it is an original design of a tree of life with Pictish symbolism of 6 of the 7 elements of life…fruit, reptiles, birds, mammals, fish, and insects.
