This is a very pretty acorn shaped box made out of Brown Mallee Burl (Eucalyptus socialis) with Bocote (Cordia elaeagnoides) cap. Brown Mallee is rapidly becoming my favorite burl. Is is heavy, stable, densely patterned but with minimal checks and voids. Turn and thread well. The golden brown color is also unique. I have never seen such wrinkled grain as this!. Another visual feast! The patterned Bocote cap adds contrast and doubles the visual interest of this acorn.
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 jewelry, keepsake... Through the ages, people has given out acorns as symbol of prosperity and luck. This one is a unique gift.
