LV-3648  American Holly & Edible Fig Threaded Wooden Mushroom Box-THREADED

LV-3648 American Holly & Edible Fig Threaded Wooden Mushroom Box-THREADED

$ 98.00

This is a very special mushroom shaped box made out of American Holly (Illex opaca) stalk with Edible Fig (Ficus carica) cap. This is another species of mushroom, grown from a small branch of fig from my yard.  When I salvaged the log, I was very skeptical about fig wood, the wood looks very spongy.  But after a year+ drying, the bark remains tight, the wood looks solid, so I gave it a try.  Here it is, a respectable mushroom cap with decent threads and interesting color.

This threaded box can be used to hold small valuables...The screw-on cap ensured that your content is secured; also serves as a unique gift for nature lovers.

Dimension (largest diameter x height): 2-3/4" x 4-1/8"
