Old Oak, 2012
Oak, Elm, Pear
7"h x 3.5"w 3.5"d
The sphere has eight magnets embedded in the Pear rings between the two
Oak halves. These magnets align the grain for a perfect match. A slight twist to the top causes the magnets to move to a repelling position thus popping the lid open. The top knob and the bottom tail were just for fun.
