LV-3747  Maple & Live Oak Wooden Mushroom Secret Compartment, Pill Box, Jewelry Box-THREADED

LV-3747 Maple & Live Oak Wooden Mushroom Secret Compartment, Pill Box, Jewelry Box-THREADED

$ 325.00

This is a very special mushroom shaped box made out of Coast Live Oak (Quercus agrifolia) cap with Bigleaf Maple (Acer macrophyllum) stalk.  It's mushroom season here now.  This one is the larger one I managed to grow from my lathe.  It's difficult to find such a big oak branch that can be dried with minimal splitting.  I highlight the few cracks by filling them with black resin, which adds character and a realistic look to the piece.  I like oak for mushroom cap.  The natural radial rays looks like gills of the mushroom.  The stalk is made from another domestic timber.  The relatively plain wood of maple works well as a mushroom stalk.  What special about this mushroom is the oak cap.  The radial rays of oak mimics the gills of the mushroom perfectly.   This is one king-size saprophyte!

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
