This is a beautiful flat threaded holder made out of Mun Ebony (Diospyros mun) with Curly Koa (Acacia koa) cap. Mun is a lustrous ebony with beautiful pattern. The dark wood goes well with virtually any other color, so it is the most utilized timber in my design. I like flat boxes with dark ebony base as accent for the more striking color cap. In this case, the cap is a super curly Koa. Endemic to Hawaii, Koa is the most prized, revered woods of Hawaii. The wood that sparkle, specially with the curly figure like this one. It is not only shine, but the 3D depth is also amazing. The wood is highly sought after for carving, furniture and specially musical instruments. "Koa" means brave, bold, fearless, or warrior, it is surely a bold looking timber from a beautiful land! This box combine two exceptional timbers from places that I had previously called home. I like this one!
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 for the hands to open or close the cap, flat boxes require very careful matching of the threads for a smooth, spin-on/spin-off operation.
