LV-2860 African Padauk & Bocote Acorn Jewelry, Ring Box, Pill Box-SCREW CAP

$ 98.00

This is a larger acorn shaped box made out of African Padauk (Pterocarpus soyauxii) with Bocote (Cordia elaeagnoides) cap.  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 reddish brown over time.  That tiger striped Bocote cap goes particularly well with this red nut. 

A nice sized box for your valuables. The screw-on cap makes this nature inspired box extra special and ensures that your content is secured, good for jewelry, keepsake... Through the ages, people has given out acorns as a symbol of prosperity and luck. This one is a unique gift.
