This wood came not from one single tree, but many trees. If you ask me - this wood is one of the answers to the question "what happens when we cut down all of our trees?" One of my answers - we have to start manufacturing the wood we use from what remains. This wood is called "paralam" and is manufactured like plywood to create structural support beams in architecture, but the scraps make great boxes! Although it is man-made for industrial purposes, the process has created a most unusual and fascinating pattern and a fabulous conversation piece. There has not been one person who has stopped by our booth & not asked about it. We finish all of our woodworking with Clapham's Beeswax Salad Bowl Finish and we NEVER use stains. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions. If you would like to see more of our rattles, boxes, and spirit shakers please enter our Etsy shop at:

Exterior Dimensions: 4.5" x 4" x 3.5"

The first four photos are of the box from different angles. Since I don't have a tree picture for this box, I've posted the photo of us in our booth at the Eugene, Oregon Saturday Market (the longest running outdoor handcrafted marketplace in the country).
