LV-3107  Persimmon & Live Oak Wooden Mushroom Trinket Box, Pill, Jewelry Box-THREADED

LV-3107 Persimmon & Live Oak Wooden Mushroom Trinket Box, Pill, Jewelry Box-THREADED

$ 215.00

This is a very special mushroom shaped box made out of Persimmon (Diospyros virginiana) with Coast Live Oak (Quercus agrifolia) cap.  It's mushroom season here now.  This one is the larger one I managed to grow from my lathe.  It's difficult to find such a big oak branch that can be dried with minimal splitting.  I highlight the few cracks by filling them with black resin, which adds character and a realistic look to the piece.  I like oak for mushroom cap.  The natural radial rays looks like gills of the mushroom.  The stalk is made from persimmon wood.  Persimmon is a true ebony species, the only native American ebony.  It is heavy, hard and polishes well.  You can see some random dots of ebonized wood,  The timber is not all that common commercially.  The plain wood works well as a mushroom stalk.  What special about this mushroom is the oak cap.  The radial rays of oak mimics the gills of the mushroom perfectly.   This is one king-size saprophyte! 

This threaded box can be used to hold small valuables...The screw-on cap ensured that your content is secured; also serves as a unique gift for nature lovers
