Surprise! It’s not a bowl.

This is more of the same wood a friend brought to me from his place in Georgia. I cut it, milled it, shaped it, sanded it, glued it and Voila! its a box.

The grain is so neat I just put lacquer on it and let it go… No stain or oil or stain.

That is some beautiful wood. And getting to start off from log form makes it even better. Nice work

Good to see Georgia pecan is as riddled with worm holes as ours in Oklahoma!

Nice job on the box.

Great job. Must be satisfying to take it from tree to box!
