    Hedgerow Elm

    Something a little different, both in form and construction.

    Chas that is a beautiful piece as is the wood. Love the way the wood turned out on the lid.

    Really nice chunk of wood, Chas! And I really like the shape you used. Simple lines, yet elegant.

    Very nice work with beautiful wood. Thought about putting a little knob for a handle on that lid?
