LV-2822  African Padauk & Cocuswood Stem Apple Threaded Box-SCREW CAP

LV-2822 African Padauk & Cocuswood Stem Apple Threaded Box-SCREW CAP

$ 145.00

This is a very pretty apple shaped box made out of African Padauk (Pterocarpus soyauxii) with Cocuswood (Brya ebenus) stem.  Chances are that some of you are familiar with this timber.  If you shopped for wood flooring, Padauk is one of the options. That speaks volume about the hardness and durability of this species.  It is indeed a very nice timber to work with.  The fresh cut wood has a vibrant red color, which will mellow down into a rich red brown over time.  The deep red color is just perfect for an 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 turned out great with almost a perfect match of the grains, a rare occurrent.

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!
