A lovely box handcrafted by Earnie from my very favorite wood; you guessed it - the Pacific Yew. The heartwood has the most amazing rich orange color fixed with the tight growth rings of the tree's history. The cambium layer or young sap wood is a solid blonde color and this piece has a very thin layer of inner bark that adds a nice texture and a bit of burnt red to the colorscape. The lid of this box is layered with remnants of the tree bark and a slice of one of the tree branches standing tall, making it easy to imagine the direction the tree grew. This wood was from very old fence posts that we collected. Pacific yew is a very special tree. The wood does not rot like other woods and it is endemic to the Pacific Northwest, meaning this is the only place in the world where it grows and the wood and bark contain taxol, which has been successfully used in breast cancer treatments. Many cultures around the world have given the yew species the profound title of "everlasting life". A most precious tree and box.
