LV-2637 Verawood with Ebony Stem Wooden Apple Threaded Box-SCREW CAP

LV-2637 Verawood with Ebony Stem Wooden Apple Threaded Box-SCREW CAP

$ 125.00

This is a very pretty apple shaped box made out of Verawood (Bulnesia sarmientoi) with Ebony (Diopsyros mun) Stem. Vera is such an interesting timber with such striking green color. The green color developed when exposed to light. You can see that the interior of this apple is yellow instead. I turned this apple and let it "ripe" for a few days to get the green patina. The timber look so handsome in the form of this cute, green apple.. Looks delicious enough to eat! Beside being branded as THE forbidden fruit, apple has many connotations and a unique gift that teachers love to receive from their pets. An apple threaded box is a more difficult item to make since I have to match the threads and the wood grain as well, but what fun! This one is my best apple so far: the grain are perfectly matched; the two parts close just tight so that the join line is almost invisible; the grain, color and shape are beautiful . I am so tempted... A nice box for your valuables, about the size of a real apple. The screw-on cap makes this nature inspired box extra special and ensures that your content is secured, good for jewelry, keepsake... Great as gift for the apple of your eyes!
