This wood was scrap that came from a friend's small mill & wood shop in the Willamette Valley of Oregon. I love finding wood scraps like this small piece. We can tell that this wood laid out in the elements for some time because it is covered in what is called spalting. Spalting occurs when the wood is consumed by fungus and appears as fine pen & ink like patterns on the wood - aka insect art. This small box has a lot of character and will make a lovely home for a small treasure.

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 final photo is of a maple tree in our valley dressed in her finest fall colors. (Sorry, but the marbles stay with us.)
