This simple, yet elegant round bottom box is turned from a piece of Big leaf maple burl that features a bark inclusion. The bark inclusion has been stabilized with epoxy and provides additional character to a piece of wood that already has tons of figure. The form itself is simple,letting the wood do the talking. The outside of the lid is recessed and framed by a simple bead by a chamfer decorate both sides of the line where the lid meets the base. The bottom is decorated with a couple of turned rings to provide a little extra surprise when the box is handled. Finish with Tung oil and buffed to pleasant sheen, this box will only get better with time.
