Amboyna Burl is arguably the king of burls, and is very desirable and expensive. While this piece does not have the birdseyes that give Amboyna burl its greatest value, it has very rich coloration and grain patterns. Amboyna has a somewhat pepper-like spicy aroma. This wood, in its non-burl form, is also known as Narra.  A rare piece of Marri forms the pull on the lid. There is a small bead detail at the bottom of the box.

This dense, hard wood has been polished to a satin lustre.

Slippery Elm (aka Red Elm) is the medium brown shell of this wooden box, forming the carved tree silhouettes and lid. A liner of Gingko was inserted after the carving was completed, and the box was hollowed. The lid is topped with a pull of Black Palm.

Mulberry Burl Keepsake Box (BX134)

Slippery Elm & Gingko Carved Wood Box (BX81)

Rare Australian Mulga Wood Jewelry Box w/ Tray (BX83)

Australian Mulga (an Acacia species) is a highly desirable wood that's difficult to obtain in the U.S. It has a creamy-yellow sapwood and rich, reddish-brown heartwood. This jewelry box was turned from a section of Mulga log in a way that retains the bright sapwood almost all the way around the lower portion of the box, while allowing the lustrous heartwood to emerge and rise from it into the lid. A few hairline cracks (that have been sealed tight) radiate from the lid's center, a reminder of the natural material the box is fashioned from.

Lifting off the lid via the Wild Apple gumdrop pull reveals an Apple lift-out tray, for those small jewelry items you use regularly. A small bead detail at the bottom of the box echoes the rounded lip of the lid.

The finish has been buffed and polished to a very smooth, soft satin luster.

Amboyna Burl (Narra) Wood Treasure Box (BX64)

Cherry, Linden & Ebony Wooden Keepsake Box (BX31)

In late summer each year, the birds frantically mob mulberry trees to gorge on the tasty fruits hanging like jewels from the trees. And when a mulberry tree comes down, woodturners often exhibit the same kind of behavior to get at the bright yellow wood. Although it often slowly changes from bright yellow to a beautiful russet color, the wood of Red Mulberry is universally appealing. It's even more cherished when burl figure is involved, as in the case of this keepsake box.

Soft, semi-gloss finish.
