Sweet Ash

This piece is 9×5 inches, and made with figured ash with lots of little bark pockets, and the lid is curly walnut. I epoxied on a polished agate for the lift, just to try something a bit different. I was concerned with it snapping off, so I glued a small stop block inside the box to keep it from ever making contact with the box sides. Finished with wipe on poly, then waxed and buffed.

I really like this box. That is some spectacular looking ash, and the walnut it sweet too.

super looking box. The figure of the Ash is great. I like the lift idea and the asymmetrical position of the lift.
