This is a very pretty acorn shaped box made out of Eastern Red Cedar (Juniperus virginiana) with Brownheart (Vouacapoua americana) cap. Among many of other so called cedars, this species is another cedar-wannabe. It is actually a juniper, but the common name, or misnomer, stuck. The brownish-red heartwood is fragrant, very fine grain but light, and very rot resistance. Moths do not like the aroma from this timber, so it is often used as lining for clothes chests and closets. The inside of this acorn is not seal for your sniffing pleasure. Capped with Brownheart, a relatively new timber from South America, this is another large acorn box for your treasures.
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.
