Deadfall Ash lidded box

This came from a deadfall in my woods that finally fell over. Stood dead for 3 years till the ice finally took it this winter. This is ash, normally very white. Guess standing dead so long it changed color a bit. 3"X4 1/2"..Finished with mineral oil only..Bill..

Hey turnertoo: That's a great looking box. As soon as I can figure out how to post a picture, I'll send you one of a box I recently made for my wife.
Best regards, Walt Rollison/Litlhof.

That's a pretty box. And very nice wood, I'd love to have some of that.

I wonder if a bead at the top edge of the lid would tie it together?

The proportions are good, and I like the finial.
