|This three inch high box is full of contrasting colour, shape and texture. A square of burr oak, with a turned interior. The inset top is made of cherry and turned all over. The box itself is finely finished and polished, all except for the upper surface. The board had become somewhat weathered, with an attractive grey patina, and I retained this as a decorative feature. This box could be used to store all sorts of small items - anything that won't get lost in the little crevices often found in burr wood! I describe the making of these boxes in my blog here.
