LV-2582 Madrone Burl with Chechen Acorn Jewelry, Ring Box, Pill Box-SCREW CAP

$ 105.00

This is a very pretty acorn shaped box made out of Madrone Burl (Arbutus menziesii) with Chechen (Metopium brownei) cap. Madrone is known as Strawberry tree, Madrona, or Madrone burl.  This is a unique Pacific hardwood that has pink & tan colors with an occasional red streak. Its burls grow almost exclusively underground.  The burl wood has subtle pattern, eyes and swirl. Madrone is one of the dense, hard local woods that I really enjoy. Capped with Chechen, also known as Chechem, Caribbean Rosewood and Black Poisonwood due to the urushiol in its bark, which can cause contact dermititis on one's skin when touched. Don't worry, only the sap is sinister, the timber is perfectly safe and is a highly valued wood in South America and West Indies. Of course, it is their rosewood equivalent: lustrous brown with darker streaks that polishes up to a satiny feel. 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...
