This 3.5" W x 4.5" H lidded canister or mini crock has beautiful spalting in the wood grain that resembles lightning. Which is perfect because it has an interesting story.
One summer night Ron was sitting on our covered front deck in the Ozarks watching a lightning storm roll in. As the storm got closer and the thunder crashed loudly, Ron stood up to go inside. At that very moment, a lightning bolt flashed and struck the neighbors huge old hickory tree. It blew all the bark off the tree! Unfortunately, the tree never recovered.
Shortly afterwards the neighbor offered up the wood to Ron for his woodworking.
This piece would be perfect to store Q-tips in a rustic bathroom, nuts in the kitchen, special trinkets on the bookshelf or even the ashes of a dearly departed pet.
What will you use it for?
Either way, its definitely a conversation piece and a gorgeouswork of art.
