This simple, yet elegant round bottom box is turned from a piece of Big leaf maple burl. The form itself is simple,letting the wood do the talking. The outside of the lid is a simple dome shape while in the inside features a subtle reverse peak. Groves form two delicate beads that decorate the seam between the lid and the base. The bottom is further decorated with a couple of turned rings to provide a little extra surprise when the box is handled. The wood used in this box has been stablized, which means that it is considerably harder, heavier and more durable than regular big leaf maple burl, but still has all of the beauty and character. Although the wood is heavy, the box is turned thin enough to still be delicate but not fragile. Finished with Tung oil and buffed to pleasant sheen, this box will only get better with time. The perfect place to keep your most precious earrings, cuff links or other keepsakes.
