If you have followed our Etsy shop you will know that my favorite wood is the Pacific Yew. Many cultures around the world have used the Taxus tree or yew and considered it a tree representative of "long life". This box has all of the sublime beauty that draws me to this wood. When looking at two sides, you can see the heart wood in orange beneath the cambium layer or the youngest part of the tree that is blonde. There are worm tunnels and very thin layers of inner bark connected to the pockets that puddle across the cambium. This precious wood was salvaged from old fence posts and contains lots of cracks & crevices. A feast for the imagination.

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:

The first four photos are of this box from different angles. The last photo is of the needles of a Pacific Yew tree on the North Umpqua River.
