LV-3590 Oxhorn Bucida Burl & Black Chacate Flat Pill Box, Ring Holder, Jewelry Box-SCREW CAP

$ 98.00

This is a round box made out of Black Chacate (Guibourtia conjugata) with Oxhorn Bucida Burl (Bucida buceras) cap.  Also known as Florida Black Olive, Gregorywood, Bulletwood...Oxhorn bucida is a common ornamental tree of South Florida and the Keys.  The burl, however, is definitely not common, and what a beautiful thing!  This is also one of the hardest burl wood I have worked with.  The density is right up there with the Deset Ironwood, another very heavy timber.  Rare and beautiful!  The dark base with its yellowish brown color compliments the cap very well.  Black Chacate is a great timber with subtle figure and polishes up to a glass-like finish!  I like this 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.
