LV-3649  American Holly & Edible Fig Wooden Mushroom Box-THREADED

LV-3649 American Holly & Edible Fig 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. The shallow cracks on the cap were filled with black resin for added accent.

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.
