LV-3779 Betelnut & Dogwood Mushroom Box, Pill Box, Secret Compartment-THREADED

$ 68.00

This is a cute mushroom shaped box made out of Betelnut (Areca catechu) cap with Pacific Dogwood (Cornus nuttallii) stalk.  I utilize the edible betelnut in many of my design.  The net-like vein is very eye-catching.  Here, it performs as a mushroom cap.  I know there is a species of mushroom with patterned cap similar to this, but I am not a mushroom expert...The  Dogwood used here is a rarely seen species that grows in California (visit Yosemite in spring if you want to see them in bloom).  It is a very fine grained wood with a nice rosy tint.  The wood turned and polished up so well, it is the local wood of choice for my threaded items.

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