I couldn’t wait to get the finish on this one. Even unsanded these woods shimmered. Putting on the finish is what keeps me doing this. Anyhow, this box is figured walnut and figured hickory. It is 5×9x 4 ish, with a wipe on poly finish.

You’ve done it again! If I keep sawin logs, I’ll find some cool stuff like that eventually. This is my best find to date. (blackjack oak sawed yesterday).

bigogre, It is a type of oak we have a lot of here. The live trees don’t have the color that the standing dead ones do. The big problem is finding one that isn’t hollow or rotten in the center. I have seen huge live blackjack that are hollow/rotten in the center. They are considered a “trash tree” and are rarely milled for lumber.

Don’t see much curly walnut in the wild, looks great. Nice job on this box, I like the hinging lid style.
