LV-4998  Olive Burl cap with Suriname Ironwood, Ring Holder, Jewelry Box-SCREW CAP

LV-4998 Olive Burl cap with Suriname Ironwood, Ring Holder, Jewelry Box-SCREW CAP

$ 75.00

This is a round box made out of Olive Burl (Olea europaea) cap with Suriname Ironwood (Bocoa prouacensis).  Olive is the National tree of Portugal, and Albania. It is one of my favorite wood with it's extra fine grain and beautiful figure. The burl is even more special, loaded with extravagant figures. this is the first time I came across Suriname Ironwood, and it was love at first cut!  The timber is super dense, even more so than Lignum Vitae!

The all-wood threaded box is a rare commodity. The screw-on cap is what make this box extra special. It can be used to hold pills and small valuables...The flat profile fits unobtrusively in a purse or pocket for people on the go, and the screw cap ensures that your content is secured. I don't make flat boxes very often. Since there is very little space to maneuver the threaded cap, flat boxes require very careful matching of the threads for a smooth, spin-on/spin-off operation.
