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.
