This is a round box made out of Brown Ebony (Caesalpina paraguariensis) with Osage Orange (Maclura pomifera) cap. Osage Orange is a hedge tree found in the Great Plains, from south Oklahoma to Northern Texas. The name of the tree comes from the native Osage tribe and the aroma of the ripe fruit. It has nothing to do with the common citrus orange. The wood is one of America's most colorful timber. The bright yellow wood simmers and glows. The bright yellow contrasts against the rich brown Brown Ebony.
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.
