I don’t think I’ll ever grow tired of wood with character. At least that’s what I call wood that others see as having imperfections. There is something about the variations of color and grain that just grabs my attention.
The wood for this box would be considered scrap to many, but to my eye it just moves. And, by cutting the top in a fan pattern we have the birth of what I like to call the Grainbow; color and pattern everywhere.
The board that this box was made from was one of the “allowable” defects in a standard order and would typically be rejected or hidden. However, some finger joints and Walnut trim and we have a box that I just can’t seem to part with.
Rejected wood is what makes the boxes here at My Wooden Box special. What others see as defect, I see as character. If there’s anything you can count on here, its that no two boxes are identical; each has it’s own character.
