LV-3587  Thuya Burl & Brown Ebony Flat Pill Box, Ring Holder, Jewelry Box-SCREW CAP

LV-3587 Thuya Burl & Brown Ebony Flat Pill Box, Ring Holder, Jewelry Box-SCREW CAP

$ 89.00


This is a round box made out of Brown Ebony (Caesalpina paraguariensis) with Thuya Burl (Tetraclinis articulata) cap.  From Argentina, Brown Ebony features dark chocolate brown tones with a pleasing grain pattern. It is not the true ebony species but has characteristics similar to Black ebony: very stable, will not change color over time and polishes very nicely.  I particularly like the warm tone of this wood and the sublte but nice grain pattern.  Thuya Burls actually grow underground on the roots of Tetraclinis articulata trees.  It has the golden brown tonw with a pleasant cedar aroma.  Thuya Burl is considered something of a national treasure in Morocco.  Tetraclinis articulata is the official national tree of the island of Malta.

The all-wood threaded box is a rare commodity. The screw-on cap is what make this box extra special. It can be used to hold pills and small valuables...The flat profile fits unobtrusively in a purse or pocket for people on the go, and the screw cap ensures that your content is secured. I don't make flat boxes very often. Since there is very little space to maneuver the threaded cap, flat boxes require very careful matching of the threads for a smooth, spin-on/spin-off operation.
