In late summer each year, the birds frantically mob mulberry trees to gorge on the tasty fruits hanging like jewels from the trees. And when a mulberry tree comes down, woodturners often exhibit the same kind of behavior to get at the bright yellow wood. Although it often slowly changes from bright yellow to a beautiful russet color, the wood of Red Mulberry is universally appealing. It's even more cherished when burl figure is involved, as in the case of this keepsake box.

Soft, semi-gloss finish.
