Visited my son in the rural farmland / jungles of Panama – he is in the Peace Corps. Found a small piece of wood just outside his hut. Took it home and made a little jar from as my souvenir from the trip. I don’t know the species, but I suspect either Panamanian teak or rubber tree. The chunk of wood in the last two photos was used to make the lid. Finished with Arm-R-Seal.

Nice Job and a great Idea. I go to Africa frequently but an afraid to bring wood back through customs. I may have to find a chunk.

What a great way to keep memories alive. Years from now you’ll see this lidded jar and recall your trip vividly. Great turning!
