Finger jointed bark boxes is a common type of bark item. They were earlier used for food, tobacco and snuff, bigger boxes for vodka, milk and yoghurt. Today they are popular as tea or coffee boxes.

They are made from two pieces of bark with the barks brown inner surface turned outwards. The joints vary in size and shape. Lid and bottom are made from wood. Bigger boxes are made from several pieces of bark and have two or more joint lines.
