LV-2852  Satin & Chechen Flat Pill Box, Ring Holder, Jewelry Box-SCREW CAP

LV-2852 Satin & Chechen Flat Pill Box, Ring Holder, Jewelry Box-SCREW CAP

$ 75.00

This is a round box made out of Chechen (Metopium brownei) & Satine (Brosimum rubescens) cap. Also known as Caribbean Rosewood, Black Poisonwood, or Chechem, Chechen has rosewood-like quality: beautiful, colorful, swirly grain, hard, and dense, just what I like in a timber.  The scary name of black poison wood refer to the irritating sap from this tree, but once dried, it is safe to work with (I am still alive and well....) and when finished, it is completely safe to use.  Satin is also known as Bloodwood.  It is a bolder red color and remarkably dense and tight-grained.  With poison and blood, this innocent looking box is perfect for some kind of insidious potion...

The all-wood threaded box is a rare commodity. The screw-on cap is what make this box extra special. It can be used to hold pills and small valuables...The flat profile fits unobtrusively in a purse or pocket for people on the go, and the screw cap ensures that your content is secured. I don't make flat boxes very often. Since there is very little space to maneuver the threaded cap, flat boxes require very careful matching of the threads for a smooth, spin-on/spin-off operation.
