This is a very pretty acorn shaped box made out of Thuya Burl (Tetraclinis articulata) with Black Walnut Burl cap. National tree of the island of Malta, Thuya Burls actually grow underground on the roots of Tetraclinis articulata trees. It is also considered something of a national treasure in Morocco. It has the golden brown tone with dark eyes and a pleasant cedar aroma. This is another one from my aromatic timber collection. The inside is not seal for your sniffing pleasure. Capped with Black Walnut Burl for contrast and more visual interest. This is a larger acorn that I have turned. I have tried to make the smallest threaded acorn box, now I am going in the other direction...
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.
