LV-2855  Thuya Burl & Mulga  Flat Pill Box, Ring Holder, Jewelry Box-SCREW CAP

LV-2855 Thuya Burl & Mulga Flat Pill Box, Ring Holder, Jewelry Box-SCREW CAP

$ 85.00

This is a round box made out of Australian Mulga (Acacia aneura) & Moroccan Thuya Burl (Tetraclinis articulata) cap.  An Australian wood, Mulga is the name of a long, narrow shield of wood made by the aboriginals out of Acacia wood. The hard, dense wood was also used for boomerangs and spear shafts. It is hard and heavy, fine-grained and is capable of taking a fantastic polish.  Thuya Burls actually grow underground on the roots of Tetraclinis articulata trees.  It has the golden brown tonw with a pleasant cedar aroma.  Thuya Burl is considered something of a national treasure in Morocco.  Tetraclinis articulata is the official national tree of the island of Malta.

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.
