Spalted and Silver Maple Box
This box is turned from spalted sugar maple and silver maple wood, displaying the natural beauty of the wood grain.
Each box is turned by one of the nuns at St. Scholastica Priory. They are turned from green wood which will continue to move over the years. It is effected by the atmosphere -- it will expand and contract, etc., and rarely be a perfect round. Over the years the wood will darken. Each box is an original because the wood is different and reacts differently due to the grain in the wood, etc.
It is finished with Behlens Turners Finish, which is food-safe and non-toxic.
