Box from Torrey Pine tree

Filed under: Woodworking — thefusionguy @ 8:38 pm

I made this small box from the wood of a huge Torrey Pine tree that was removed from an adjoining property, as described in an earlier posting. The lift tab and the corner bracing are from a piece of Brazilian rosewood I picked up in Berkeley in 1972. The finish is Zinnsler shellac with a thin topcoat of wax.
