This is a very pretty acorn shaped box made out of Flowering Dogwood (Cornus florida) with Lacewood (Panopsis rubellens) cap. Nothing beats the beauty of mass blooming Dogwoods in early Spring, specially along the side of a flowing stream. What a sight to remember! Native to North Eastern US, Flowering Dogwood is the state tree of Missouri and Virginia. The wood has a nice pink tint with subtle coloration and is very hard and dense. Hard enough that it was used to make golf club, mallet and butcher block, among other things. Well, I think it looks best made into an acorn like this one! Capped with the shimmering Lacewood for added visual interest. This is nice!
A nice box for your valuables. The screw-on cap ensures that your content is secured, good for jewelry, keepsake... Thought the ages, people has given out acorns as a symbol of prosperity and luck. This one is a unique gift.
