This is a very pretty acorn shaped box made out of Chinese Juniper (Juniperus chinensis) with (Panopsis rubellens) cap. This juniper species is a popular ornamental tree or shrub in gardens and parks, certain cultivars are also used for bonsai. I was fortunate to obtain a blank of heartwood from this non-commercial species. The wood is extremely beautiful with all shade of purple, pink, red, yellow, swirled together. The Lacewood cap adds another layer of visual complexity with it shimmering, lacy pattern. This acorn not only looks good but feels silky smooth and smells so pleasant! It is also a largest acorn I have turned. I really like this one!
A nice box for your valuables. The screw-on cap ensures that your content is secured, good for jewelry, keepsake... Through the ages, people has given out acorns as a symbol of prosperity and luck. This one is a unique gift.
