LV-2678 Box Elder Burl & Ironwood Slim Box, Toothpick Holder, Needle Case-SCREW CAP

$ 75.00

This is a pretty slim threaded holder made out of Box Elder Burl (Acer negudo) with Desert Ironwood (Olneya tesota) cap.  Box Elder is a species of maple native to North America.  The wood is fine grain, but relatively plain.  An interesting fact about this wood is when injured, the wood reacts by developing a brillian red stains, called red flame.  Another great feature of this species is the burl.  This particular piece was made from a high grade burl, choke full of eyes and swirly grains for your visual exploration.  Capped with shimmering Desert Ironwood, this is a real handsome holder.

The crew-on cap makes this holder extra special and ensures that your content is secured. The slim profile fits unobtrusively in a purse or pocket for the people on the go. This holder can be used to hold toothpicks, pill, snuff, sewing needles, cash stash and small valuables...Also serves as a nice gift for someone who seems to have everything.
