The wood for this box came from a severely spalted maple tree that had blown down in a wind storm at a nearby swimming hole—Blue Hole. The box measures 9×8 x 3 and the box lid handle was copied from one of my kitchen cabinet handles! Surprisingly, even with all the spalting, the wood is pretty strong and stable. It’s finished with 3 applications of natural Danish oil and 1 application of Howards wax. This is the prettiest wood I have ever worked with and I am relieved that it turned out okay. Thanks for the looks and the comments.
