This box is made from end-grain spalted ash. I chose the end-grain because in this particular piece the color in it was incredible. It is totally naturally colored only oil-finish and polyurathane were used to protect the wood. The sides and ends are end-grain while the top / bottom are more naturally milled pieces of boards.
This is one of our "found" wood pieces made from ash that was cut a few years ago behind a local business. They were more then happy to have it out of the way, and we were more then happy to get it home and mill the log into usefull and beautiful slabs. We discovered the end-grain had this extra color, texture and took a finish very nice when working on the ends of a custom live edge mantle -piece...the little box was don on request.
Dimensions: 5.5 long x 4.5 wide x 2.75 inches tall.
