LV-2503 Mun Ebony & Olive Burl Flat Pill Box, Ring, Jewelry Box-SCREW CAP

LV-2503 Mun Ebony & Olive Burl Flat Pill Box, Ring, Jewelry Box-SCREW CAP

$ 78.00

This is a round box made out of Mun Ebony (Diospyros mun) with Olive Burl (Olea europaea) cap. Mun Ebony is my favorite ebony species for several reasons: the wood is very fine and easy to work with, the patterns can be very striking and a hint of green tint make this ebony special, the wood is very stable, dimensionally. This dark wood is lustrous and goes well with any other colored wood, thus it is my favorite for box body.
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.
