I have other projects in the works, but I have been working with wood that I find around town.

The first is a box made from ‘Salt-Cedar’ root. This root split as it dried but gave more wood than you see here. Lost some in the planner. The rest was just too small. The wood is much like Poplar, what I call soft. But this is the best of what was left. The root was about 8” dia. and about 12” long. Check out the rays. Otherwise, it would have been in the trash.

Neat looking wood and a good box from waste.
