I made my daughter a jewelery box out of walnut and quartersawn white oak. The white oak was from a 317 year old tree at my church. The wood I made this box from was from cut-offs that would have otherwise been firewood! The figure in the white oak (picture 3) is amazing and I couldn’t bring myself to not find something to do to salvage it for a project. I still need to make some inserts for the box, but that will come later. The bottom is made of 3/8” eastern red cedar. The finish is Danish Oil (more coats to come). Thanks for looking.
