This is a beautiful flat threaded holder made out of Desert Ironwood (Olneya tesota) with Leopardwood (Roupala brasiliensis) cap. Some woods look their best on a flat cut. Leopard wood is one of them. So, I have to make a flat box out of this timber to showcase its beauty. Do you see why it is called Leopardwood now? The base is Desert Ironwood, one of the best timber from North America. It looks awesome no matter how I cut it!
The all-wood threaded box is a rare commodity. The screw-on cap is what make this box extra special. It can be used to hold pills and small valuables...The flat profile fits unobtrusively in a purse or pocket for people on the go, and the screw cap ensures that your content is secured. I don't make flat boxes very often. Since there is very little space for the hands to open or close the cap, flat boxes require very careful matching of the threads for a smooth, spin-on/spin-off operation.
