I have had this posted in the gallery for a week or so, but I see most of the others are posted in this thread as well.

This box is turned from mountain ash (rowan) that I cut down in my back yard a few years ago. It had dried out and spalted and is very soft. The lid has an insert made from osage orange, which in turn has a few decorations cut with the use of the Joyner Jig.

Several coats of wipe on polyurethane and a beall buff to finish the piece.

Something interesting that happened when I was making the box is that I had the lid mounted on a jam chuck to make the recess for the insert. The lid was a nice fit on the jam chuck, I had popped it on and off once and it was just about a perfect fit - tight enough to turn the lid but popped off easily.  After I glued (Titebond 2) the insert into the recess, I  didn't think I would ever get the lid off the jam chuck.  Apparently the fumes or moisture from the glue had caused the wood to swell just a little bit.

Thanks everyone for participating.  Now I'll pair us up randomly.
Here's another little twist.
PLEASE PM me "Guy Bratt" with your mailing address.  I will PM you back with the address to whom you will send your creation.
When you send your package, post here that you have done so.
DO NOT indicate who you sent to.
When your trade arrives, post here again that you received it and from who, whom???

David your package arrived today.  Thumbs Up  I'll be taking it to my turning club to show off tomorrow.
It's a beauty.  Thanks for the "shoe last" blank and the history of Hartt Shoe and Boot.  I'm glad they saved the front of the original building.
I'm not sure what to do with the blank.  Should I save it near the box you made for me?  It's all part of the story. or, Should I create something and continue the story?  This is hard.  Hmmm  Thank you very much.

Gary make something with the blank, you will se they are butter smooth clear Maple a joy to work with. I am glad it arrived safely I don't suspect customs opened the package. The coin in the lid is called a Loonie up here $1 the date is irrelevant it wasjust the shiniest one I could find.

A medium flat rate box was at my front door this evening. Way too heavy to contain a 4" lidded box. What a surprise to find two big chunks of wood, walnut and cherry.

Wrapped up to the side was also that magnificent spalted mountain ash box pictured in Tony Rozendaal's post above. Thanks Tony, outstanding workmanship on that little box.

What is the second word written on the block of Cherry ? Did these two blocks of wood come from your property also ?
