Turning Archive 2005
>My neighbor commissioned some boxes out of a piece of a tree that was her mother's favorite. Her Mom has been gone now for about 5 years, and this piece of wood has been hanging around her home. She had no idea what she was going to do with it until she found out I was a turners. The wood is Staghorn Sumac. Two of the boxes have osage orange lids. One has an ebony finial, and one has a black walnut peak/finial where the pith crumbled away. They're all about the same size approximately 3" tall.
