In my never ending hunt for different and unique types of woods, I ran across some Birdseye pine the other day. After watching it sit against the wall for a few weeks, I decided to make a simple box with it. I didn’t want anything to fancy, b/c I felt the wood could speak for itself. Hope you enjoy.

Wow. Wonder what causes the birds eye pattern to form.

Kewald, I don`t know what causes it. I`ve never seen it in
pine. You mostly see it in maple and cherry. Maybe someone will tell us about it.
Thanks for the comment.

Amazing piece of wood. I think your use of it is spot on – simple design lets the wood do the talking.
