This is a very special mushroom shaped box made out of Photinia (Photinia fraseri) with Coast Live Oak (Quercus agrifolia) cap. The red tip photinia is one of my favorite wood for turning, the wood is comparable to Boxwood in every aspect, but with a warmer tone. These shrubs never grow very big and is often used as hedges around here. My neighbor did a re-landscaping on their yard and some old growth Photinias has to be removed. I was very lucky to have obtained the wood and give it a second life as lustrous turned items. Here it became a cute mushroom, with a live oak cap decorated by a ring of natural bark.
This threaded box can be used to hold small valuables...The screw-on cap ensured that your content is secured; also serves as a unique gift for nature lovers
