LV-3472 Rainbow Poplar & Betelnut  Slim Pill Box, Toothpick Holder, Needle Case-SCREW CAP

LV-3472 Rainbow Poplar & Betelnut Slim Pill Box, Toothpick Holder, Needle Case-SCREW CAP

$ 78.00

This is a pretty slim threaded holder made out of Rainbow Tulip Polar (Liriodendron tulipifera) w/ Betelnut (Areca catechu) cap.  Tulip poplar is the state tree of Indiana, Kentucky, and Tennessee.  It is the tallest native tree of Eastern US.  The wood is generally a non-described off white,but the heartwood might develop color tints from the various mineral aborbed from the soil.  When this happen, we have rainbow poplar.  I wonder what type of chemistries were at work to create such a colorful natural stains in this species.  This threaded box has a very simple profile, longer than my usual slim box to accomodate all the colors of this rainbow.  Capped with the eyecatching betelnut for added effect.  I like this one!

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.
