|Chokecherry Driftwood Box|
Ever since Earnie & I took our first trip to the Oregon Coast together and he taught me about the wonderful world of driftwood, I have been dragging home one particular driftwood that has always caught my eye. The color and pattern in the wood always seemed so unusual and beautiful and I loved the contrast of smooth & rough slit-like texture of this wood. However, they were usually too small in diameter for a box and became either a walking stick or a decoration for the house or yard. Not this time. Earnie cut up a piece we found on our last trip and it is to the coast & determined that it is Chokecherry (or Wild Black Cherry) and amazing!!!
