This tear drop shaped box is made of maple burl from the state
of Oregon. The bumps that grow on the sides of trees are called burls. They have outstanding
grain patterns in them and they make beautiful bandsaw boxes. This bandsaw box not only has the
3/4" hole for storing a few extra $100 bills but it also has a secret little drawer for that special
piece of jewelry that you want to provide with an extra measure of security. This little drawer can only
be opened by removing the main drawer from the box and pulling it out from the rear.
