LV-3159 Black Walnut Burl & Bay Laurel Acorn Pill Box, Jewelry, Engagement Ring Box-SCREW CAP

$ 89.00

This is a very pretty acorn shaped box made out of Black Walnut Burl (Juglans negra) with Bay Laurel (Umbellularia californica) cap.  Black Walnut needs no introduction.  It is the most popular dark wood of the temperate zone.  Its timber is valued for fine furnitures, musical instrument, gun stocks, wood floors, amongs others.  Here, I have a very nice walnut burl, loaded with figures and eyes.  Burls of this caliper are often sliced into thin veneers.  Bay Laurel is a monotypic and endemic species.  CA Bay Laurel is also known as Oregon Myrtle when it crosses over to that state.  However,  it is not a true laurel nor myrtle, just happen to have the spicy aroma.  The wood smells so good when turn.  The tree was valued by Native Americans as food source and medicine.  Today,   it is well sought after as a world class tone wood.  The wood has a nice tight grain with a shimmering sheen.  This is one nice acorn!  

A nice box for your valuables. The screw-on cap ensures that your content is secured, good for  small jewelry, keepsake... Thought the ages, people has given out acorns as a symbol of prosperity and luck. This one is a unique gift.
