This classic shaped box is turned from a beautifully spalted piece of curly silver maple (Acer saccharinum) and features a delicate bead where the lid meets the base and a subtle ogee curve in the lid. The spalting in this particular piece of wood forms a distinct zone of darker, almost cherry coloured wood, that provides considerable character and interest, making it truly one of a kind. Two fine rings turned into the bottom provide a little surprise when the box is handled. The tung oil finish enhances the natural depth and shimmer of the wood, and has been buffed to a pleasant sheen, but still give it a natural wood feeling. This box is the perfect place to keep your most precious earrings, cuff links or other keepsakes.
