This is a round box made out of Partridgewood (Andira inermis) with Kingwood (Dalbergia caerencis) cap. Partridgewood got it's name from the grain patterns that resembles partridge feather. It is another not-often-seen timber with pretty dark brown color and tight grain. Brazilian Kingwood is a beautiful member of the rosewood family with a violet hue. It is a dense wood that polishes up to a lustrous finish. It was a popular wood for high-end furniture of the 18th Century, specially that of King Louis XV and XVI (hence, the name Kingwood). It is now becoming becoming very rare and expensive.
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 to maneuver the threaded cap, flat boxes require very careful matching of the threads for a smooth, spin-on/spin-off operation.
