LV-3598 Nagusta 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 Nagusta Burl (Terminalia amazonia) cap.  Also called Canxan Negro or Ironwood Burl (not to be confused with the Desert Ironwood), Nargusta is a tropical hardwood species with a wide range throughout Central and northern South America.  Althouh considered a commercial timber, I have never seen the timber imported to the US; only the burly form is sometimes available.  It is very dense and pretty with subtle multi-color swirls.  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.
