I have not yet had a chance to get the boxes listed on Etsy.
I will get this done as soon as I possibly can.
Turned Bowls & Boxes
One of the things John loves to do is to make little lidded boxes. He does this on the lathe and has worked out a way to make both the container and lid from one piece of wood. He also makes larger bowls (no lid) for trinket trays.
All of his wood items are made from reclaimed wood. What this means is that the tree or limb either fell on its own, was trimmed to clear power lines or was removed as an invasive species.
When we lived in South Dakota, there was a very old apple tree in the side yard. It was totally overgrown and John had to prune it back. This little box was made from one of the larger limbs from that pruning.
This little box was made from a dead branch of a Locust tree that was growing in the shelter belt on our old property in South Dakota.
On our old South Dakota property there was an old shelter belt. There had been a lot of spraying in the area over the years and quite a few of the trees were more dead than alive. The Russian Olive that the wood this little box came from was one of those thees.
This little guy was made from a small, white oak burl that John traded some of our Russian olive for. This wood came from Minnesota.
