Me, How much would sir like for this?
Him, Oh I don't know. Me Ummm. ummm um arh um, how about £15.

Me, Okay £20 then. Would you mind bringing it over to my stall later, I don't have any money on me at the moment.
Over the years I have collected a bit of box, all bone dry and ready to use. I mainly use it for tool handles.
I used box for as a handle for the MaChris that Jon Mac and Chris Grant gave me. Being so dense it can be finished to a silky smooth surface. A tactile finish that the hand falls in love with. The wood scraps very well and a cut finish with a sharp knife is glassy smooth. If sanded then work all the way through to the finest grits.
