LV-4648  Manzanita & Brown Ebony Slim Box, Toothpick Holder -SCREW CAP

LV-4648 Manzanita & Brown Ebony Slim Box, Toothpick Holder -SCREW CAP

$ 72.00

This is a pretty slim threaded holder made out of Manzanita (Arctostaphylos glauca) with Brown Ebony (Caesalpina paraguariensis) cap.  Manzanitas are the most picturesque trees around here.  The reddish, peeling bark trunks twist and turn, give the tree a weathered look with a lot of character.  They grow in abundant here on the hillsides, but all my attemp to grow them in my garden has not been successful.  My failure to domesticate this species heighten my appreciation for them.  I like both its character and attitude.  Manzanita wood is high on my favorite list.  It is very dense with a beautiful dark red color.  Trouble is the wood does not behave.  The twisted trunks are small to begin with, and tend to split like crazy when dried.  Thus, a large chunk of dried manzanita wood is a rare commodity.  This piece came from a old growth heartwood with nice deep red color.  The small crack was filled with resin and serves as a signature for this species.

The screw-on cap makes this holder extra special and ensures that your content is secured. The slim profile fits unobtrusively in a purse or pocket for the people on the go. This holder can be used to hold toothpicks, pill, snuff, sewing needles, and small valuables...Also serves as a nice gift for someone who seems to have everything.
