The lumber for this came from my dentist. He had some leftover rough cut pine that he had used as siding on his barn. It had been sitting out side most of the summer and he said if I’d like some to take it. It was all weathered and warped but I ran it all through the surface planer a few months ago and set it on the lumber rack. Well I saw this design and decided to try it. It was the wife’s idea to stain the box and “tree” part. The handles are supposed to look like leaves that I cut from zebra wood. Dimensions are 6”H x 8”L x 4 1/2”D. A few coats of wipe-on poly and some hand wax. I need a class on finishing, it never comes out like I hope.
