Default F.A.R.T. wood Lidded Box.

Found this bit of wood at the tip and the grain looked interesting so it followed me home.
It is some kind of Eucalyptus????
The box is 3 1/2in tall and 11/2in wide.
I sprayed this one with varnish as I didn't want to rip my fingers off with a friction polish. Sanded to 400.
Thanks for looking and I hope you like it.

Bob

I had a bit OF Osage Orange once that looked a bit like that. Good to hear you are on the mend.

Very nice Bob. It's great to see your work again. Is this a "yarn box?"

No Mark, It's just an ornament.
