LV-5114 Black Locust Burl & Sheoak Acorn Pendant Box, Pill Fob -SCREW CAP

LV-5114 Black Locust Burl & Sheoak Acorn Pendant Box, Pill Fob -SCREW CAP

$ 58.00

This is a very pretty acorn-shaped box made out of Curly Buckeye Burl (Aesculus California) with Sheoak (Casuarina torulosa) cap. California Buckeye is a unique timber capable of developing a metallic blueish gray tint. I have worked with the burly form, I have turned the blue stained wood, and now I am pleased to showcase the curly figure: gorgeous shimmering grains with a 3D effect and a very unusual color!  Sheoak is one of the rarest and most spectacular woods in the world. It has a dark red to orange heart wood with prominent lacey medullary rays. 

A nice box for your valuables. The screw-on cap makes this nature inspired box extra special and ensures that your content is secured. It is ready to dangle off your keychain, bag zipper, belt with the removable lobster claw. The nut is small enough to be worn as a pendant (without the claw). Good for small daily pills, keepsake...Not recommended for long-term storage of emergency pill, since I don't know how air/water tight the closure is. Through the ages, people have given out acorns as a symbol of prosperity and luck. This one is a unique gift.
