Unknown burl, given to us last century .. finally used this last piece.
The box-body is red cedar.
About 15×18cm.
This one also went over well at the golf club.

Is the burl one solid piece with an angle cut in it or did you cut two pieces and join them together.

Terrific work!

Very beautiful use of the burl. I am wondering your process for milling the burl top. Great job!

It was 1 piece; I cut the angle with the table saw blade at4mm high—or whatever the
thickness of the burl-slice was. Had thought about using the 45-deg router-bit, but
didnt want to risk tearout. Even with the saw, cut slow.
I forget, may have sticky-taped it in case of tearout.

For cabinets it’s all about the door(s). For boxes, it’s usually all about the lid. You nailed it.
