This is a very special mushroom shaped box made out of Zebrawood (Microberlinia brazzavillensis) cap with Birdseye Maple (Acer saccharum) stalk. African Zebrawood obviously got it's name from the zebra-like stripes. What's not obvious is that the wood also smells like zebra sh*t. It's another type of "aromatic" wood that hold the promise of an interesting olfactory experience. Sniff it at your own risk, but don't be too disappointed if it was not as potent as I have led you to expect. I got to enjoy the primary note of its fragrant, which greatly diminishes in finished items. That's partly why you only see an occasional zebra running around in my store. Birdseye maple pattern is subtle but beautiful with a shimmer and 3D effect that can not be rendered in my photos.
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.
