This is a very pretty acorn shaped box made out of Chinese Pistaschio (Pistacia chinensis) with Camatillo (Dalbergia congestiflora) cap. Another interesting wood with a greenish tint and beautiful figure. The Chinese Pistashe is a nice landscaping tree with an incredible fall color display, followed by multicolor fruit clusters when all the leaves have fallen. I used to live in a house with a tree in the front yard and loved it! But now I think I love it's wood even more. I have this piece of Chinese Pistachio with all the colors, including a light patch of sapwood, and even some curly figure. So, I transformed it into the most unusual acorn I have ever made considering the odd size, shape and color combination. I like the way it turns out!
A nice box for your valuables. The screw-on cap makes this nature inspired box extra special and ensures that your content is secured, good for daily pills, cash stash, keepsake... Through the ages, people has given out acorns as a symbol of prosperity and luck. This one is a unique gift.
