Turned Box in Spalted Maple- Item 228
This beautiful box is turned from a wonderful old piece of spalted maple. Spalting occurs when the tree has died and starts to decay. Minerals end up in the wood and give it fantastic colors and patterns.
This box has a loose lid to make it easy to open in spite of its wider size.
It will make a great box for jewelry on top of your dresser. It is 2-3/4" round and 1-3/4" high.
Finished with beeswax and polished to a satin, silky feel.
