This is a very pretty acorn shaped box made out of Figured Bocote (Cordia elaeagnoides) with Black Palm (Borassus flabellifer) cap. Bocote is one wild timber from Mexico. The dark yellow wood is decorated with dense black streaks. The bright yellow color of Bocote will darken with exposure, so expect it to mellow down with age. It is one of the most strikingly figured timber and a joy to work with. Capped with Black Palm for contrast and additional visual interest without distraction from the wild figure of the nut.
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 a symbol of prosperity and luck. This one is a unique gift.
