LV-3589 Afzelia Xylay & Black Chacate Flat Pill Box, Ring Holder, Jewelry Box-SCREW CAP

$ 125.00

This is a round box made out of Black Chacate (Guibourtia conjugata) with Afzelia Xylay (Afzelia xylocarpa) cap.  From SE Asia, Afzelia is often known in it's burl form.  Here it's the wood with a special figure called xylay, which looks almost like a quilted form in Maple.  This type of figure does not extend deep into the wood, so the pattern is best showcased on a flat surface, perfect for this type of box. This timber has a nice orange tone and hard and dense enough for my threading.  The Black Chacate body contrast nicely with the beautiful cap.  Only one!

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 to maneuver the threaded cap, flat boxes require very careful matching of the threads for a smooth, spin-on/spin-off operation.
