This is a very special mushroom shaped box made out of American Holly (Ilex opaca) with Canyon Live Oak (Quercus chrysolepis) cap. Looks like mushroom season is approaching here at my neck of the wood. I found a few oak trimmings on the curbside a while back. The branches I gathered are now dry enough to become mushrooms. Live oak looks awesome as mushroom cap because the gills of the mushroom are already built in with the oak's radial rays. I leave a ring of bark as accent on the rim of the cap. Holly is the whitest wood available commercially, perfect for mushroom stalk!
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
