LV-3049 CA Buckeye & Lignum Vitae Slim Pill Box, Toothpick Holder, Needle Case-SCREW CAP

$ 68.00

This is a pretty slim threaded holder made out of California Buckeye (Aesculus californica) with Lignum Vitae (Guiacum officinale) cap.  The bluish stain Buckeye is something very special.  It is one of the few woods that exhibits this kind of natural color.   The trees is one of my favorite species around here: beautiful leave, massive flower head, picturesque form, interesting fruit.  The wood is normally plain white but often develop a natural stain that gives it a very unique steel blue color.  Items from the wildly beautiful buckeye burl are commonly seen, but not many were made from its wood.  

The crew-on cap makes this holder extra special and ensures that your content is secured. The slim profile fits unobtrusively in a purse or pocket for the people on the go. This holder can be used to hold toothpicks, pill, snuff, sewing needles, cash stash and small valuables...Also serves as a nice gift for someone who seems to have everything.
