This capsule shaped box is turned from Pau Rosa (Bobgunnia fistuloides), a beautiful, but under utilized wood from Africa. A capsule box is subtly pleasing but the simple shape means that the form and finish must be perfect. This particular box was turned from a piece of Pau Rosa that has considerable visual interest with alternating lines of oranges, browns and black that flow continuously from the base into the top. A simple v-groove decorates the seam between the lid and the base and the lid fits on the base with a nice pop fit which mean if can be remove easily with both hands, but will remain in place if the box is inadvertently knocked over. Texturing on the bottom of the box provides a little surprise when the box is handled. Finished with a lacquer and buffed to a high gloss, this box feels as good as it looks. The perfect place to store your most precious jewellery or keepsakes.
