This box is made with hickory from the local hardwood supplier. It is very unusual, and saying that it is full of character does not do it justice. It would be better to say that it has attitude. It is very difficult to work with, all of that figure comes from some serious stress build up in the tree. I will post a picture of some of the stress fractures of the cut offs with the next box.
Sorry about the blue cast, took the pictures outside today. Wanted to get these posted in a rush. When its one of the seven nice days in Indiana, you do everything outside.
Box measures 11×13ish and is finished with a base thinned out lacquer and topped with two coats of wipe on poly. The top is curly maple.
