Crafted from a single aspen firewood log, this exquisite box features a circular door secured by a durable bronze clasp. The lower half of the box contains a spacious compartment with a discreet smaller drawer nestled within. To preserve the delicate aspen bark from peeling, the box has been coated with a layer of protective epoxy resin. The light-colored wood is further enhanced with a layer of antique wax, imparting a charming aged appearance. Due to its natural state, the log exhibits slight spalting, resulting in unique and captivating patterns. This lightweight box weighs a mere 430 g and measures 16 cm in height, 12.5 cm in width, and 12 cm in depth (6.3 x 4.9 x 4.7 inches). For centuries, aspen wood has been prized for its strength and lightness, making it the ideal material for crafting boxes.
