Now sold and in the post. Thanks to all who have expressed interest.

Offers received - no more for the moment, thank you.
English box wood, felled about ten years ago. Dry, no visible insect damage (though the bark is still on), and no visible checks or splits in the ends. It is in logs of about a foot long or slightly longer, and of diameters varying between three and four inches There is also one long branch, about 6’9”, with a diameter mostly of just under three inches. Total weight close to 25kg. Shipping by arrangement with buyer. It’s near Chipping Norton if you wanted to collect. £60.00, as a complete lot – I don’t want to subdivide it.

It's a real shame you don't want to sub-divide it and I can quite understand why. I suspect that it's probably too much timber for the 'run of the mill' sort of turning but that said it's beautiful timber that will take incredible detail. I'd like at some point to try the dark art of 'thread chasing' on the lathe and this is the ideal stuff to do it in, but I don't need the quantity on sale here. Two or three of the larger chunks would be fine - Rob
