WILLOW SURPRISE

Made from a single piece of red willow about 24" x3"x3/4" sliced into 1/8" veneer on a Baltic birch plywood .
This piece of willow just had to be a box because of the colour and fantastic grain features .I used only BLO and bees wax as a finish and it just brought out the natural wood colour and grain .
I can look at this box time and time again and see different things in the grain every time .

My first woodworking projects were made from willow, wood from my backyard. The grain is so beautiful.
