    New box

    This one is from a HUGE buckeye burl from my last haul. The proportions are kinda jacked up, but the shape came out the way I wanted. Inside finish is much improved over last time. The light part of the outside has a funky grain...no tear out or chips...this time. Mylands again. Suggestions welcome and thanks for the one's that improved this one

    Nice figure on the wood, and it looks like you got a nice finish on it!
