Spalted Birch Box *PIC*

Greg Haugen
>This is a "no thrills" box. I started out with great plans that were crushed with the first cut. I realized how punky it was. I was even getting tearout from "V" cuts with a skew. At that point it became a challenge to make a completed box and I accepted it. It's thicker than I'd like but with it being so punky I couldn't risk going thin. The diameter is just under 3" and it's just over 4" high. Finish is a sanding sealer mix and a wax that I just recently switched to called Fiddes Supreme Wax. Love it! I used it for the sanding as well the final finish.

Comments welcome and appreciated.

Thanks,
Greg Haugen
