This is a small lidded box (or jar) created from wood from an Amur Cork Bark Tree. It is about 2-14×2-1/4 inches. Finished with Watco Danish Oil.

The wood was obtained from a tree surgeon who operates in the Madison, WI area.

Not much else to say about it.

Very nice.

Excellent turning. The grain orientation is perfect and the wood is exceptionally beautiful.
