Here is a box project I made from spruce I had in the scrap bin .
I got the inspiration from a teapot that I got from a second hand store and after playing with the design this is what it turned into .

Very interesting design. Another winner/

What kind of wood?

Whatʻs the finish?

Looks like copper in the pictures. How did you get that texture?

Thanks Alex
I used some old spruce scraps I had for years for this .
The finish is stain and some wipe on poly
The texture is done with small router and a carbide ball mill

Thanks Andre
Thing are very frustrating but life goes on .
I have improved and am back in the shop and hope for better days!
The mill has been shut for good and sold to a service company ,but 2×4 SPF of any quality are hard to find and cost between $10.00 to $12.00.
Hope you are playing in the shop and keeping healthy !

Thanks MrWolfe
Well yes the catalog is getting larger and I have displayed my work at several shows .
This box was a design idea and meant as a gift to a good friend of my Daughter but my Daughter claimed it when my wife sent her some pictures .
Now it’s back to the shop and make a couple more .
