I got this walnut burl off of ebay really cheap. I don’t think the person knew what they had. It turned out to be a nice looking box. I thought leaving some of the bark on it gave it a nice effect.

Beautiful box, great that you decided to show off the beauty of the wood instead of adding a liner. How big is the box? Welcome to Lumberjocks, I look forward to seeing more of your work.
