Lidded Yew Box

Yew wood is great wood to turn and very hard although it is considered a softwood. A friend of mine in Ireland sent me the yew wood along with some bog oak and bog yew. Yew is very dense and has great color red and cream are a great contrast with each other. These types of boxes are great skill builders and have endless shape and design potential.
