LV-2962  Curly Koa Threaded Vessel, Urn with Black palm Cap and Inlay Accent

LV-2962 Curly Koa Threaded Vessel, Urn with Black palm Cap and Inlay Accent

$ 685.00

This is a unique vessel made out of Curly Hawaiian Koa (Acacia koa) with Black Palm (Borassus flabellifer) cap and inlay.  This is a beautiful threaded vessel made from a nice piece of curly Hawaiian Koa (Acacia koa), capped with Black Palm () and accented with a ring of cross-cut Black Palm inlay.  Endemic to Hawaii, Koa is the most prized, revered woods of Hawaii.  The wood that sparkle, specially with the curly figure like this one. It is not only shine, but the depth is also amazing.  The wood is highly sought after for carving, furniture and specially musical instruments. "Koa" means brave, bold, fearless, or warrior, it is surely a bold looking timber from a beautiful land!  For contrast and visual interest, I use Black Palm for the insert, threaded knob and the inlay.  Black palm is not an easy timber to shape and thread, but I always love the way it look! 

A lidded box is nice, but a threaded box is something special. The screw-on cap ensures that your content is secured. It is a beautiful decorative item as well as functional, and is even large enough to serve as a small urn.
