LV-4676  Holly & Willow Acacia Wooden Mushroom Keepsake Box, Pill, Jewelry Box-THREADED

LV-4676 Holly & Willow Acacia Wooden Mushroom Keepsake Box, Pill, Jewelry Box-THREADED

$ 135.00

This is a very special mushroom shaped box made out of American Holly (Ilex opaca) withWillow Acacia (Acacia saligna) cap.  I found a few oak trimmings on the curbside a while back.  The branches I gathered are now dry enough to become mushrooms.  Live oak looks awesome as mushroom cap because the gills of the mushroom are already built in with the oak's radial rays.  I leave a ring of bark as accent on the rim of the cap.  Holly is the whitest wood available commercially, perfect for mushroom stalk!  Willow acacia is a very nice ornamental tree.  The long, narrow leaves sweep downward like that of a willow.  Bright yellow mimosa-like flowers cover the tree in bloom season.  The only problem is it litters a lot, dropping it's leaves, flowers, and seeds all over.  My sister got tired of mopping up after this tree and one fine day, decided to cut it down.  She gave me a few small branches and from those (with the help of my faithful lathe) a brand new species of mushroom sprouted.  What a beauty! 

This threaded box can be used to hold small valuables...The screw-on cap ensured that your content is secured; also serves as a unique gift for nature lovers
