$ 250.00

This is a unique box made out of Rainbow Poplar (Liriodendron tulipifera) with Verawood (Bulnesia sarmientoi) cap.You are looking at the best example of rainbow poplar around. This piece of poplar looks like an abstract painting. I wonder what type of chemistries were at work to create such a colorful natural stains in this species. Tulip poplar is the state tree of Indiana, Kentucky, and Tennessee. It is the tallest native tree of Eastern US. The wood is generally a non-described off white,but the heartwood might develop color tints from the various mineral aborbed from the soil. When this happen, we have rainbow poplar. This threaded box has a very simple profile, just to showcase the wood. Capped with green tint Verawood and a small inlay of pacific abalone shell. I like this one!

A lidded box is nice, but a threaded box is something special. The screw-on cap ensures that your content is secured. It is a beautiful decorative item as well as functional, and is even large enough to serve as a small pet urn.
