I got a very small piece of spalted maple with my Craigslist wood find. The piece kind of said “make me a box” to which I replied, ” sure”. Nothing complicated here.

Spalted maple and mahogany. Danish oil finish.

7.5 inches wide, 5 long

Thanks as always for looking and commenting.

Kaleb, I like your box. I’m fond of spalted wood, and I enjoy seeing new box designs. Good job!
