    Box Elder burl natural edged lidded box.

    I found some real nice Box Elder burl on a dead tree that was being torn out on a construction site. I went back that night and got all I could before my saw ran out of gas (forgot to take the gas can). The next night I went to get more and it had been hauled off. But I got a couple pretty nice burls. This is a lidded box from a piece of one of them. It's 8" tall by 4.5" diameter. The rim inside the box and around the lid, and the finial are dyed somethingorother wood.

    That's a great piece on all counts, Curt. It seems you keep expanding your repertoire with every piece. Looks like it could have been a real knuckle-buster if you weren't being careful.

    Curt, this is "da bomb"! I love it. A terrific piece.
    I may be getting a little older physically but mentally I'm still tarp as a shack.

    Really nice piece Curt. Was the vase as fragile as it looks?
