We are able to get a lot of wood from our friend Seth, who has a small mill in Springfield, Oregon. All of the woods that come through his mill are from trees that were removed due to illness, disease or damage. When we cut each box the hearts become another smaller box, a shaker or baby rattle or a hair barrette until all that is left is the kindling for our woodstove. I especially enjoy this little box because the grain is so simple that the beauty is found in the colors and the way the wood catches the light & shimmers.

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: 2.5" x 2" x 1.5"
Interior Dimensions: 1.25" x 1.25" x .5"

The first four photographs are of this box from different angles. The final photo is of our beloved 1953 Boice Crane Bandsaw - made the same month & year as Earnie was born.
